Charleston, South Carolina. 1822. Ex-slave Denmark Vesey strives to buy the freedom of his enslaved wife and two young children. But his plan is complicated when their love-obsessed master thwarts him and the Charleston police shut down his independent Black church. Will Denmark secretly escape with his family to the safety of the North, or stay to lead his church members and slaves in an insurrection against their oppressors? A powerful work with a gospel-influenced score.
