"Day of Tears" Play Reading at Prosser Public Library
See the dramatic play reading of "Day of Tears," based on the book by Julius Lester. Laurie Cabral, Artistic Director and the Day of Tears Touring Company will present this dramatic play reading. On March 2nd and 3rd in 1859, more than four hundred slaves were marched to the auction block and for two solid days it rained. The slaves forever referred to this as "The Weeping Time." The torrid rainfall did not cease until all the slaves were sold. This event is brought to life from excerpts of the novel by Julius Lester.
