This one-woman show thrillingly recounts the story of Reaves’s grandmother, nationally recognized civil rights pioneer Betty Daniels Rosemond and her beautiful, horrifying, and trailblazing journey through the American south as one of the first Freedom Riders during the 1960s. Audiences far and wide will experience the internal conflicts and joys of a dark-skinned Black woman’s fearless battle for equity and equality.

This reading contains adult language and descriptions of racial and civil rights violence.
