At the Woodland Cemetery is a story of a Tennessee slave who was freed in 1864 and settled in Dayton where he spent the next 40 years of his life. His now infamous reply was in response to a request from his former master to return to the Tennessee farm after the Civil War. A lecture about this weaves together an inspiring tale of a man and his family as they emerge from bondage and thrive in freedom. This is on Saturday at 4pm.

Masterworks III: Misha Dichter. An all-American program featuring one of the nation's foremost pianists will sample melodies of both Gershwin and Yellow Springs native Drew Hemenger.
