Tolton: From Slave to Priest

Tolton: From Slave to Priest is a live theatrical one-man drama performed by actor Jim Coleman based on the life of Fr. Augustus Tolton, the first African American priest. This compelling true story of courage, forgiveness, and reconciliation resonates deeply with modern American audiences. Bishop Joseph Perry of Chicago, postulator for Fr. Tolton’s canonization cause, is calling Tolton a production that will “inspire a new era of peace, hope, and forgiveness in America.” Tolton is a riveting multimedia drama not to be missed.
The production runs 75 minutes, and is suitable for middle school age and up.
Admission will be a free-will offering.
