Awesome performance.We came all the way from the Bahamas and it was worth every moment.Do not miss this show!
A great big Thank you to the Avery Center for our tix to see When I First Remember!
So grateful!
Delighted to see some Gullah/Geechee Nation Appreciation from Adam Parker, Post and Courier / The Post and Courier this week. Support from Lowcountry Quarterly Arts Grant Program has assisted Lady in White Productions to invest in making "When I First Remember" a sustainable (and sustaining) event at Old Bethel United Methodist Church as it continues along in 2017. So impressed by this show's journey from idea to premiere in 2016 to a continuing run in the heart of Charleston, South Carolina.
Tonight is our last night in Charleston and we went to When I First Remember. This interactive storytelling journey is heart stirring and heart wrenching at the same time. You are transported to a time where we were denied our humanity. This should be a must do for every visitor to Charleston.
The last time I felt the need to celebrate was June 16,2017, celebrating the transition of my Cousin Micheal "Smurf" Blain. My cousin was killed by car 20 years ago at the age of 15. A young soul who was loved by the whole Sandridge community. I seen him in a dream and in this dream he is telling me not to go to Virginia like I planned and make sure his name is honored at the event that was giving by his brother called "Smurf Day". This day was so beautiful. Bringing together a community that needed to feel that moment once again. Moment of happiness and joy of an community. I was excited that I made it to the event because it showed me so much about myself and also the importance of family and community. #WhenIFirstRemember
What an Awesome Play. Absolutely Unforgettable. I asked from the Oldest to the Youngest: What did You learn from this This True Play about Our Ancestors #IRememberWhen
1. I wanted to get up & dance with the drums. It Sounds like I know the Songs
2. I wanted to cry because the drums told the Slaves danger was coming. The Lady was screaming for her Mother. They took her Mother. They put a rope on the ladies neck. They tied her hands. I wanted to cry.
3. It was good. It made me sad.
4. She watched the kids laughing & having fun. 5. I didn't know we can eat pigged feet. Have You ever tasted it? Me: Yes. I wanna taste it? How do You make it. Me: I will ask Your Mom if she will cook it for You.
6. It made me sad. Why did the people do that to the Slaves. They can sing Too.
7. The people was good.
8. She was clapping every time she heard the Drums from #adunde
