A special event at Princeton Public Library

In advance of our May 5 performance of Sanctuary Road, we are excited to announce a special event to bring you insight and context for the New Jersey-specific history addressed in the music.

On Sunday, April 14 at 2 p.m. in their Community Room, Princeton Public Library, in partnership with Princeton Pro Musica, presents William Still and Sanctuary Road.

Samuel Still, executive director of the Dr. James Still Historic Site and Education Center, will give a presentation about his remarkable ancestors who escaped slavery and settled in New Jersey, where two of their sons were born and rose to prominence. Dr. James Still (1812 – 1882) became a highly regarded medical doctor, despite his being mostly self-educated. His brother, William Still (1821 – 1902), was a conductor for the Underground Railroad, and a chronicler of those perilous journeys to freedom.
