Hampton National Historic Site celebrates Black History Month with three one-act plays written, produced and acted by students from the Baltimore School for the Arts. The performances take place in various locations in the mansion – the great hall, the kitchen and the orangery. Entitled Finding the Story, the one-act plays take the audience back in time and uncover relationships of the past. Performances begin at 2 p.m. on February 20, and admission is free.

Additionally, Hampton has scheduled a walking tour, “Servitude at Hampton: In Black and White,” on February 13. On February 21, there will be a portrayal presentation of Harriet Tubman and on February 28, there will be a guided tour, “On the Hampton Plantation.” All events are free and begin at 2 p.m.

Towson is home to many restaurants, shops, Towson Town Center, Towson Square and the campus of Towson University. As the university opens its doors to two Center Stage productions, the benefits of this partnership will be many!
