Coastal Carolina University's second annual Pen and Podium
production, "The Trial of Susan B. Anthony," will be presented March 5
and 6 at 10 a.m. in Wheelwright Auditorium in conjunction with the
university's African-American Celebration. The event is free and open
to the public.
Written by Lee Bollinger, assistant professor of English at

rights activist Susan B. Anthony, who was arrested after voting
illegally in 1872.
The cast includes Coastal dramatic arts alumnus Allie Ruddell as
Anthony; Edgar Dyer, professor of politics and geography, as the
prosecuting attorney; Preston McKever-Floyd, senior instructor of
philosophy and religion, as Frederick Douglass; dramatic arts major
Tressie Williams as Sojourner Truth; interdisciplinary studies major
Jason Wallace as the defense attorney; and Jack Flanders of information
technology services as the judge.
