Walk Through Black History

Director: Peggy Jackson

16th Annual Walk Through Black History

Sixteen years ago, members of First Baptist Church created the Walk Through Black History to celebrate unique stories of African Americans that have bravely lived lives that transformed American Society. It is our hope to advance the cause of racial reconciliation through the arts.


Looking Back with Ruby Dee


Ruby Dee was an acclaimed actress and author. She graced the stage and screen for more than seventy years. She was the first Black woman to appear in a major role at the American Shakespeare Festival, in Stratford, Connecticut. She made several appearances on Broadway before getting national recognition for her role in the 1950 film, The Jackie Robinson Story.

Ruby was deeply committed to her art and the Civil Rights Movement. She paved the way for future black actors both on and off the screen. Ruby crusaded for civil rights and spoke out against injustice. Join us as we view life through Ruby Dee’s eyes. Ruby Dee played by Adrianna Johnson. Narrated by Ernest Jackson. Play adapted and directed by Peggy Jackson. Resourced from the book: With Ossie Davis & Ruby Dee: In This Life Together


This year's February 2021 production was held online due to COVID-19.

Thank you to all the dedicated cast and tech crew that made this possible!
