Staged Reading of "Mumbet" screenplay at BIFFMA

Saturday, June 2, 2018 -
8:00pm to 10:00pm
Please join us for a staged reading of the upcoming film “MUMBET” at the Berkshire International Film Festival!  She could neither read nor write, yet with fearless courage, Elizabeth “Mumbet” Freeman used the very words written by the men she served, “all men are created free and equal” to challenge the courts and sue for her freedom, changing the course of history, 80 years before the Emancipation Proclamation. This is the true story of an unsung American hero who was truly a founding Mother of our country. MUMBET ~ One act of bravery can change the world
