Narrator: History has a way of changing, depending upon who is telling it. Well, I invite you to take a journey with me through the true history of Negroes, Blacks, African Americans, or whatever classification you are using today. It is a journey on the road back to equality. I say “back” because we were not always slaves. But somehow, in man’s search of gold, we became more valuable, causing men and women of varying countries, races, social, and cultural backgrounds to lay aside what they knew was humane and morally right and to justify what was done to a race of people as nothing more than a business transaction.

Hunted like animals, stripped of family, property, inheritance, and dignity, someway, we found strength to fight and rise out of the ashes of burnt homes, severed limbs, inhumane treatment, and shattered families. Our voice is lifted high that we shall overcome.

In this play we endeavor to walk you through history, allowing you to have a glimpse of the struggle and reminding you of the cost¬—freedom is not free. The Road Back to Equality has been paved with the blood, pain, and anguish of our fore parents and those of other races who joined in and even sometimes helped to spearhead the fight.
