Excerpts from Flight to Freedom Program

Ajena Rogers, a descendant of James A. Fields and Drusilla Pair, Genealogy Researcher and Local Historian, will be presenting “Flight to Freedom” for the College of William and Mary's Lemon Project on Friday, March 15, 2013 at 6:00 PM. The event will be held at the Bruton Heights School in Williamsburg, VA. Here are some clips from their performance we did at Fort Monroe last August. Rogers and Pair will be presenting “Flight to Freedom” again May at Fort Monroe and again at the Hanover County, VA Tavern in November. We are extremely excited particularly about the tavern engagement because her ancestor Martha Fields worked there as a Cook when she was enslaved by the Winston family.
