I, Nat Love Presented by Rochel Garner Coleman

February 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Bring the kids to the Hershey Public Library to enjoy a Friends Children’s Program. Playing the black cowboy Nat Love, Rochel Garner Coleman treats the audience to the life and times of this ex-slave who joined thousands of others like him to explore and settle the West. Based on stories from Love’s autobiography, this one-man show was written by Rochel and underwent development at the Langston Hughes Center for the Arts in Seattle. From Love’s birth into slavery to his walk to freedom and how he won his name, the performance recreates that special period in American history that has captivated generations ever since. This Friends Children’s Program is suitable for children in grades K-5. Registration is not required, and everyone is welcome. If you have questions, please contact the Children’s Librarian, Rita Smith, Hershey Public Library at 717-533-6555 ext. 3708, or send Rita an e-mail to: ritahuntsmith@derrytownship.org
