Finding North is a one-man play drawn from historical research and oral histories that brings to the stage powerful stories of the yearning, sacrifices and dreams of the African-American Underground Railroad hero John P. Parker, as well as contemporary American immigrants. Performed by Daniel Carlton, text and music by David Gonzalez.
This program is offered to our CHQ Assembly audience by way of a Chautauqua Arts Education partnership with David Gonzalez.
About Chautauqua Institution: Chautauqua Institution is a community on the shores of Chautauqua Lake in southwestern New York state that comes alive each summer with a unique mix of fine and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship and programs, and recreational activities. As a community, we celebrate, encourage and study the arts and treat them as integral to all of learning, and we convene the critical conversations of the day to advance understanding through civil dialogue. CHQ Assembly is the online expression of Chautauqua Institution's mission.
