Landmark Society marks Black History Month with free performance
In honor of Black History Month, the Landmark Society of Western New York is getting ready for a free performance that brings African-Americans from Rochester's past to life.
Walk the Walk: Rochester’s African-American Ancestors examines the story's from some of our area's black pioneers, including Frederick Douglass and Austin Steward.
The show is happening Friday at 7 p.m. inside the Memorial AME Zion Church on Clarissa Street.
Shawn Dunwoody will lead the event, in the role of Captain Sunfish, a late 18th century frontiersman. Dunwoody joined us this morning to talk about the production, along with Cindy Boyer, director of public programs at the Landmark Society.
