Deborah is a college professor in NYC who returns to Davidson to wrap up the estate of her deceased aunt. Through letters and postcards, she finds in her aunt's old house, Deborah gains a fuller understanding of the challenges her aunt and the Black residents of the small college town faced as they encountered racism and other hurdles in their everyday lives. Deborah's return to Davidson opens a Pandora’s Box of emotions that has been long locked away. PROPHESY to the BONES is an original script written by local playwright Nichole M. Palmer based on actual experiences of local residents. She hopes this play will spark conversation and healing in the Davidson community.

STANDING IN THE GAP:

Power of the Prayer Line​

 

Many people say they would pray more if they believed their prayers were heard and answered. But, five Christian women in four states, who through daily, consistent prayer with one another one the phone lines for five years, assert that God is still in the business of miracles.
