Blacksmith's Song

Inspired by tales of the Underground Railroad and its innovative methods of communication, a perilous story of courage and cunning unfolds as a blacksmith and his son use the rhythm of a hammer striking an anvil to guide runaway slaves along the trail of freedom during the Civil War era. The dark night sky is lit with fiery sparks from the forge fires, shown in textured paintings and expressive portraiture following one family’s fateful flight.
