Story: Myrtle Walker

Second Step Caribbean Women’s Group Agewell has been in existence since 1983. We are well known for the many activities and events we have held over the years.

This year we are celebrating 200 years since the abolition of slavery from 1807- 2007. The group will be performing a play depicting ‘Bondage to Freedom’. We will be dramatising slavery and what it means to be free. It will be an informative, historical, yet entertaining event which will relate to where we as African and Caribbean people are coming from.

Many of the group members are local women. We have all worked hard to make this event thought-provoking, informative and educational and we would very much appreciate the support of the people of Burngreave to make this a play they will never forget.
