Rutherford B. H. Yates Museum, Inc. presents the stage play "In All Thy Getting: The Forgotten Story of Freedmen’s Town". This is a one weekend event to take place at The Ensemble Theatre (3535 Main), Friday, June 16th through Sunday June 18th.The dual plot of "In All Thy Getting: The Forgotten Story of Freedmen’s Town" explores the lives of a young husband and wife, thriving (financially) in the city of Houston but floundering in their marital pursuit of happiness.The plot is complicated by their responsibilities as caregivers to the husband’s 99 year old paternal grandmother, who resides in what she calls Freedmen’s Town.While their newfound success has afforded them the opportunity to move away from what the husband remembers as a poverty-stricken and drug-infested Fourth Ward, they’ve remained in order to take care of an elderly grandmother suffering from dementia.
