Great American History Theatre presents the world premiere of Brian A. Grandison's Adrift on the Mississippi, directed by James A. Williams. Told through memories, prayers, and spirituals, Adrift on the Mississippi is the powerful true story of Reverend Robert Hickman, who led a group of slaves out of Missouri, up the Mississippi river on a raft in search of freedom. Guided by their faith in one another and the hope of a better life, these courageous men and women formed a fellowship that carried them through their long and dangerous journey. They made their way to St. Paul where many of them settled and founded Pilgrim Baptist Church, the first Black church in Minnesota.
