Through the eyes of 17-year-old Ernestine, we see the history of the Crump family as they move to 1950s New York after the death of their mother. A story of resilience, daydreams, everyday heartbreak, and what it means to feel like an outsider fighting to better yourself and your community, Crumbs is the coming-of-age story of Ernestine, and the ways in which her family finds their way—their own peace. Their story is a testament to the challenging nature of change, and the ways in which to manage it. In the end for the Crump family, "joy comes in the morning."
This event is part of the Michael J. & Mary Anne Freeman Theatre and Dance Series and the Samford Diversity Series.
