Through the Eyes of York
Columbia Public Library, Friends Room

Emmy-Award winning storyteller Bobby Norfolk explores the life of York, a slave belonging to William Clark who was part of the Corps of Discovery expedition of 1804-1806. Despite his position as a slave, York earned the respect and awe of many people, and gained unofficial recognition as a full-fledged member of Lewis and Clark's expidition through his heroic efforts. In this one-man theatrical show, Bobby Norfolk, dressed in historical costume, explores York's early life and his struggle to be accepted as an equal on the expedition. Ages 8 and older.
