"Hidden in Plain Sight"

"Hidden in Plain Sight" is a two-staged play for the Annual Walk-Through Black History Program at First Baptist Church, Dubuque. In February 2022, a special interview with the actors will be shown online. In February 2023, the full performance will be held at FBC Church. "Hidden in Plain Sight" is a story of the life of Bella De Costa Greene. Bella was JP Morgan’s personal librarian. She was a very light-skinned black woman who passed as a white woman in order to maintain her employment. Bridgette Boone will interview Lindsey Reiter who plays Bella, and Peggy Jackson, the author & playwright.
