April 13, 2018  ·  Harold Prince Theatre


Grades 6-12

He was born on a slave ship but never a slave, was immortalized by the great English painter Thomas Gainsborough, and became the first British-African to cast a vote in 1774. In this revealing and funny one-man show, celebrated Royal Shakespeare Company actor Paterson Joseph shares the story of the daringly determined Charles “Sancho” Ignatius, his life providing an unfortunately timely reminder that the struggle for basic rights is longstanding and still very much a part of our lives today.
