More Light: Douglass Returns

Discover the violent and ultimately triumphant connection of Frederick Douglass to the Hoosier state during this powerful theater production.

Following a successful premiere in 2017, Asante Children’s Theatre and Conner Prairie will reprise More Light: Douglass Returns.

This full-length play by Celeste Williams was inspired by the historic return to India na byFrederick Douglass in 1880. He was cheered at a political rally in Noblesville after being nearly killed by a mob in Pendleton in 1838.

The play connects to the local history of the Roberts Settlement, the first mixed-race settlement in Hamilton County. This return of More Light also coincides with Frederick Douglass’ bicentennial celebration year.
