Faith & Arts: We are hosting a screening of Mike Wiley’s Blood Done Sign My Name on Friday, October 29, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. in the church.
Due to increased COVID positivity rates we had to cancel the much anticipated live performance of “Blood Done Sign My Name,” BUT we are excited to announce that we will be hosting a screening of this play which has been pre-recorded by Mike Wiley and Mary Williams on Friday, October 29th at 6:30pm. Tickets include access to both this screening at St. Matthew’s AND/OR two weeks of unlimited access to view from home. There will also be a live Q&A with Mike Wiley and Mary Williams on Sunday November 14th at 9:15am during the Sunday Forum, so mark your calendars!
This is a recording of his adaptation of Timothy Tyson’s book of the same name. In it he plays all the characters and brings to life the events surrounding the 1970 murder of Henry Morrow in Oxford, NC. He presents the story through the vantage point of all the participants and helps educate the audience of an event we may have lived through, in an area that is close to Hillsborough, but may be little known to us. We are reminded that we need to hear each other’s stories – particularly those ones that shape a community – if we are to achieve any kind of mutual understanding. Alongside Mike is acclaimed gospel singer Mary D. Williams who offers her voice and spirit, underscoring and enhancing the message of the play.
Registration is required and the suggested donation is $10. Tickets are available from the church office or online via eventbrite.
