An event every day that begins at 12:00 pm, repeating until October 15, 2021
Temple Theatre is offering a live stream of Blood Done Sign My Name: First There Must Be Truth! by Mike Wiley Based on the book by Timothy B. Tyson
Mike Wiley brings to life the recollections of Sanford author Timothy B. Tyson surrounding the 1970 murder of Henry Marrow in Oxford, NC and the events that followed. Marrow, a black man, was chased from a local store by three white men. They brutally beat Marrow then killed him in view of multiple witnesses. Despite the eyewitness reports, an all-white jury acquitted the men.
Acclaimed gospel scholar and singer, Mrs. Mary D. Williams reinforces the action on stage with powerful and moving renditions of spirituals such as “Oh, Freedom,” “Swing Low Sweet Chariot” and “Soon I Will Be Done.”
