National Civil Rights Museum says
“Frederick Douglass: The Making of an American Prophet” is a concert theatrical adaptation of the great American abolitionist and social reformer, Frederick Douglass. Commissioned by Christ Church Cathedral in Nashville, the dramatization set to music will detail his early years as a slave and its relationship to his later vision. The musical is the brainchild of Nashville playwright Marcus Hummon. It stars actor-singer Bakari King as Frederick and will include the choir Inversion, under the direction of Dave Ragland.

Grammy winner, Marcus Hummon has enjoyed a successful career as a songwriter, recording artist, composer, playwright and author. His songs have been recorded in many genres – Pop, R&B, Gospel,- and most notably in country music. Hummon, who penned numerous country hits including the Grammy-winning, “Bless the Broken Road,” Hummon has written six musicals and an opera. Three of his musicals were featured off-Broadway.

Hummon has also written a children’s book, Anytime, Anywhere, and has a documentary film project, “Lost Boy Home,” a story of a Sudanese boy returning home to South Sudan.

Reception at 5:30pm. Q&A to follow the dramatization. RSVP by Thursday, Feb. 4 by clicking the link in the "ticket" tab.
