WEBSTER GROVES, Mo. – It’s the powerful true story of Milly Sawyers. On Wednesday afternoon, the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis brought “The Milly Project” to Webster University’s Browning Hall Auditorium.
“The Milly Project,” tells the true story of an enslaved woman in Springfield, Missouri who won her freedom years before the Dred Scott case.
Adora Snead has been playing Milly Sawyers for more than a year when the show began at a high school.
After the performance, a panel discussion talked about the elimination of bias in the past and today.
