    The Play in The UK, ‘Olaudah The Middle Passage Survivor, Author & Abolitionist

    in Education

    Please Join The Gist of Freedom as we welcome Adam Tulloch from Great Britian's Production of the play ‘Olaudah Equiano, The Enslaved African’


    Olaudah Equiano Survived The Middle Passage, purchased his freedom, became a black abolitionist  and  authored the first known  Enslaved African Narrative . He was a famous proponent of British abolitionism and worked with William Wilberforce.  His story is featured in the movie Amazing Grace.

      Following its success at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, ‘Olaudah Equiano, The Enslaved African’ will be transferring to Sutton House from the 26th-29th November.

    Kidnapped with his sister at the age of eleven, Equiano is beaten, suffocated and tortured on their journey to the coast, which sees him separated from his sister and sold to British traders.
    Set in the heart of West Africa during the height of the British slave trade, ‘Olaudah Equiano, The Enslaved African’ is an honest, uncompromising and moving portrayal of Olaudah Equiano’s early life.

    Please note this is a site-specific production with no wheelchair access. The production also contains scenes of a violent nature and is therefore only suitable for those over the age of 16.

    Betty Jackson (of Greensboro, North Carolina), better known as Versatyle, knew at a very early age that the stage was where she belonged. Throughout her teenage life she graced the stage in performances ranging from school choral productions to gigging at weddings and anniversaries to being selected by her choral director Donna Culbreth to sing at a master class in New York with Broadway producer, teacher and performer Ed Lindeman at a Carnegie Hall Training Room in 1997. Throughout the years Versatyle has been influenced by many musicians and artist including her favorite vocalists Rachelle Ferrell, Donny Hathaway, Whitney Houston and many more. But her biggest influences come from her very own family.

    Purpose and Profits!

    in Business

    Is it possible to have your cake and eat it too? Is it possible to have a clear and powerful purpose that you can make money off of? The truth is when you are clear on your path and you are doing what you are meant to be doing, the money will come. We will talk about how to get to this place faster and to understand the components that give you clarity in order to seperate the signal from the noise (that we have spoken about with MaryAnn Setembrino). Today we will be joined by Sian Lindemann to give us the six questions that we need to know if we want to be clear in our delivery, and to turn our purpose into profits.
