Pittsboro, NC – Fearrington is pleased to present Mike Wiley's performance of Blood Done Sign My Name, the acclaimed memoir by Tim Tyson, in The Fearrington Barn on Saturday and Sunday, July 11th and 12th, 2009. A gifted playwright and actor, Wiley expands cultural awareness for audiences of all ages through his dynamic portrayals based on pivotal moments in African-American history. Blood Done Sign My Name tells the story of the violent reprisals following the acquittal of three men for the murder of Henry "Dickie" Marrow in Oxford, North Carolina. This compelling production acknowledges America's painful racial history, "that our freedom and dignity, if we still have any, has been paid for in blood, that we have a contract with our ancestors not to let their sacrifices be in vain."
The production is offered as part of Chatham County's Community Read program, featuring Tyson's Blood Done Sign My Name as one of the 2009 selections. For information about the Community Read program, go to the website.
