"They Called Me Lizzy...from Slavery to the White House"

Sunday, Feb 10, 2013 2:00p
Russell Library Middletown, CT

Stephanie Jackson portrays Elizabeth “Lizzy” Keckly, an African American slave who purchased her freedom and eventually made it to Washington where her dressmaking skills and entrepreneurial savvy landed her a position as Mary Todd Lincoln’s dressmaker and confidante. Much more than a slave narrative, it is a human story, sometimes tragic, sometimes triumphant, and always fascinating.
