Six-year-old Liza has little understanding of her status as a slave. Naturally eager to please, she has lived in the grand plantation house of Norbury Estate and been treated as the doll of the planter’s daughter for as long as she can remember. As 1862 rolls along, however, and tensions surrounding slavery come to a head outside of New Orleans, Louisiana, Liza finds herself transformed into a symbol in a brave campaign to prove that the significance of skin colour runs little deeper than a coat of paint.

150 years ago the history of America changed forever. Live 1863 through the stories of some of our finest writers – the passion, the romance, the tragedy, and the triumph.

Carrie Fancett Pagels. Kathleen Maher. Joy Ross Davis. Sarah Price. Karen Anna Vogel. Patrick E. Craig. Willard Carpenter. Big Daddy Abel. Murray Pura. David Stearman. And many more.
