Join us at the Publick Playhouse for the world premiere of the film Bell Affair followed by a discussion with the creators.
About the Film: Daniel and Mary Bell sued for their freedom from slavery and won. After slaveholders threaten to re-enslave them and their children, the Bells led one of the largest escape attempts in American history. Join us as their inspiring story is brought to the cinema for the first time.
