Despite all the sudden technical difficulties that arose, it is my pleasure to present my February 10, 2011 interview with actor Norman Marshall about his play JOHN BROWN: TRUMPET OF FREEDOM running at the Moonstone Arts Center this Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7PM. To buy tickets go to:
This excerpt did not include a lot of what Marshall said because of technical difficulties however he begins here talking about how Brown’s abolitionist cause attracted different people from very different walks of life. At top is a photo of Norman Marshall as John Brown courtesy of his website http://www.wbworks.com/johnbrown/play.html. Below is a famous rendition of John Brown by John Steuart Curry called “Tragic Prelude” referring to his hanging at Harper’s Ferry after his raiding a Confederate arsenal. Special thanks to DJ Champe for clearing up major technical difficulties in the studio, that made my conversation with Norman Marshall possible.
