A local theater group is staging a play about the abolitionist movement in Brooklyn.

The Irondale Ensemble in Fort Greene is performing "Color Between the Lines." The play, set in Brooklyn in the 1850s, tells the story of the borough's agricultural and economic growth thanks to slave labor.

"Color Between the Lines" also depicts freed slaves joining in the abolitionist movement.
