February 2022 Northwest Arkansas Calendar of Events

Happy February, mamas! Hope this month is filled with sweet, lovely experiences for your whole family. Here’s a roundup of some of the events happening around Northwest Arkansas in February 2022.

Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom

Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom, a new musical filled with traditional and original gospel and freedom songs, tells the inspiring true story of Lynda Blackmon Lowery, the youngest person to walk from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama during the Voting Rights March in 1965. Jailed nine times before her 15th birthday, Lynda and her friends and neighbors fought alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to secure the right to vote for African Americans. Ally Sheedy (The Breakfast ClubHigh Art, “Psych”) adapted the award-winning memoir by Lynda Blackmon Lowery for the stage. $10 per household.

Recommended for ages 10 and up. Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom tells the true story of the sometimes-brutal period of Civil Rights history in the United States. There is video of actual events and stylized dramatizations. Some content may not be appropriate for children under 10.
