Located in Sandy Spring, Maryland, the Theatre Ministry of the Olive Branch Community Church developed “Stories on the Way to Sandy Spring” in honor of the 2011 observance for Maryland Emancipation Day. This vignette, based on three fictional characters, was written by Sophonia Simms and directed by Adam Simms.
Like those in the Stories, many escaped to freedom – found gainful employment and higher education. We must never forget their courage, fortitude, and ingenuity. Despite the dangers on the road to freedom, they were guided by their faith in God and vision for a better life.
