Based loosely on the life of Osborne Perry Anderson (1830-1872) Atlanta playwright Gabrielle Fulton’s tour-de-force musical, Uprising, brings to the fore the history of John Brown’s failed raid on Harpers Ferry (1859). The piece also shines an important light of the themes of pre-Civil War African American self-determination, sacrifice and love. Anderson, channeled through Fulton’s character, Ossie, was a free-born abolitionist and one of only five men (and the only African American man), to escape capture by the U.S. Marines following Brown’s doomed Harpers Ferry attack. Uprising features both original and traditional African American jazz, blues and gospel. Join us for an inspiring afternoon of music from this phenomenal play
