How do we escape a history we don't know? The answer is we don't. Join MOJOAA Performing Arts Company at Mordecai Historic Park, one of the largest plantations in Eastern North Carolina, for an interactive and immersive experience.
Grounded in research and WPA slave narratives, Escape to Freedom will take you on a journey into American slavery. 

Performances are September 15, 16, 22 and 23 at 6pm, 7:30pm and 9pm. Performance runs approximately 90 minutes.
