About the Author
George McNeish has been involved with the Fugitive Slave Chapel Preservation Project from the beginning. When a committee member brought a story about a slave who had been separated from her husband for 12 years, and then found him singing in a Chapel, many members felt that would make a good play that could be used as a fundraiser. McNeish came up with the story, “Singing in the Chapel,” that not only incorporated that story, but one told to us by other committee members who were descendants of both slaves and slave masters. A young lady had helped her father’s slave escape to Canada and then married him. The committee commissioned playwright, Jason Rip, to write the play version of it, “My Name is Margaret Harman.” McNeish portrays slavery in a way that allows the reader to experience the emotions of those involved. He takes the facts and then shows how they would affect family members and others who were involved. Greatly influenced by Frederick Douglass and Harriet Beecher Stowe, he shows slavery at its best and at its worst. Using fiction allows issues that could never be talked about to be exposed. Things so terrible that the oppressor would never admit to it and the victims would find it too painful to mention. His novel, “THE ALTERNATIVE,” was published in 2015. Now he has teamed up with playwright, Jason Rip, to release “SINGING IN THE CHAPEL / MY NAME IS MARGARET HARMAN, in 2017.
