Labor history comes alive in this film of the stage production of musical The Moment Was Now.

The Moment Was Now takes place in post-civil war Baltimore in 1869, a turning point in U.S. history when “America almost did the right thing”. The contemporary themes of the search for racial and economic justice and women’s rights reverberate throughout the musical.

The story reveals the impassioned search for unity among the dynamic leaders of powerful social movements during Reconstruction. The conflicts and possibilities unfold in music and spoken word at a meeting convened by Frederick Douglass. Hope hangs in the balance.

Conceived and Created by Gene Bruskin In collaboration with Darryl LC Moch, Director; Glenn Pearson, Musical Director; and Chester Burke, Jr., Assistant Musical Director.

Sponsored by the Alliance for Social and Economic Justice.

A discussion with the playwright will occur after the online film presentation.
