On Tuesday, February 25, Harmony hosted the traveling company of a new musical, Turning 15 on the Road to FreedomThe musical is based on the book by Lynda Blackmon Lowery, who was the youngest person to march in the 1965 Voting Rights March from Selma to Montgomery.

That morning, the cast presented a 60-minute program to students from area high schools. In the evening, members of the community attended a free 75-minute version of the show. Urban Strings opened the program and the Harmony Project Community Chorus joined in with the cast on the closing number. Shortly after the production ended, TV personality Valencia Wicker moderated a Q&A session with the cast and Lynda Blackmon Lowery herself.

An incredible show; an incredible cast and crew; all honoring the story and legacy of an incredible woman, Ms. Lynda Blackmon Lowery.

We are so grateful for the opportunity to have had Turning 15 On The Road To Freedom join us in Columbus to tell the amazing story of the youngest woman to have marched in the Voting Rights March from Selma to Montgomery in 1965.

Our community is forever changed.
