The Lied Center is proud to be part of the world premiere of Stono, a feature-length performance and post show talk back. The film will be screened in the Lied’s main hall.

On September 9, 1739, the largest insurrection of enslaved Africans in North America began in South Carolina on the banks of the Stono River. Stono highlights the spirit of resistance and activism that remains a critical part of American freedom.

The virtual premiere will be immediately followed by a live panel discussion hosted by C. Brian Williams (founder and executive director, Step Afrika!) and special guests from across the country. Panelists will explore the Stono Rebellion and its relevance to issues regarding political protest and structural inequities that dominate American conversations today.

This is a FREE event, but tickets are required.
