The Milly Project
Milly Sawyers was a slave who sued her way to freedom in 1836 in Springfield, Mo. She was beaten shortly afterward, and no one knows what happened to her after that. Now, The Milly Project is staging a play about Sawyers' life all across Missouri
to bring unity to fractured communities, says lead actress Adora Snead.
