About the event
Our reimagined story begins with a flashback: a young mother on the run, desperate to save her newborn child from enslavement. She hides her baby in an old tree, moments before her pursuers close in. This baby girl will be found and raised by a new mother, and the future she will bring about will be revolutionary.
Her name is Treemonisha.
