Letters to Aunt Hattie

Toured the Philadelphia area from January through June, 2019. All of our one act touring shows are perfect for schools, libraries, civic organizations, women's groups, and other community organizations. Harriet Forten Purvis was a Philadelphia African American abolitionist, suffragist, and activist and we have been excited to increase awareness about the significance of her lasting work.
