Cross that River

The story of a runaway slave who became a Black cowboy

February 7, 2022

Showings

Event Details

THIS EVENT IS AT THE ROSE AND ALFRED MINIACI PERFORMING ARTS CENTER ON THE NOVA SOUTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY CAMPUS.

Award-winning  musician,  Allan  Harris  wrote  Cross  That  River  to  tell  the untold  story  of  the  Black  West  and  empower  Americans  with  an  inspiring story of hope and freedom.
 
The  unsettled  West  of  the  1860s  provides  a  new  life  and  new  dreams  for Blue, a run-away slave, who escapes from slavery to Texas to become one of America’s  first  Black  Cowboys.  This  compelling  tale  of  freedom  integrates fiction  with  historical  fact,  and  each  song  presents  a  different  page  in  this complicated chapter of American History. 
 
The story of Blue begins in Louisiana, and with every song of this highly infectious  score,  the  audience  is  moved  further  along  on  Blue’s  harrowing journey across the Sabine River to freedom in the Wild West. Each song tells a  unique  story,  at  times  joyful,  sometimes  tragic,  but  mostly  a  poignant chronicle of enduring perseverance.
