Presented by Mitchell Capel and Sonny Kelly

A Production of The First National Veterans Theater Festival
Approximately 75 minutes; audience talkback following

Approximately 180,000 African Americans, comprising 163 units served in the Union Army during the American Civil War. Mitchell Capel and Sonny Kelly are “a force to be reckoned with” as they bring to life a fraction of the untold stories of the hundreds of thousands of unsung heroes...heroes whose glory and honor have remained unspoken for entirely too long. With its powerfully poetic embodiment of these rare stories, framed by a multi-media presentation, this experience leaves audiences breathlessly enlightened and ultimately encouraged.

“I defy anyone not to be moved by these soldiers, black or white. These two are a FORCE!”
~ Bo Thorp, Founding AD, Cape Fear Regional Theatre
