“And So We Walked: An Artist’s Journey Along the Trail of Tears” is a labor of love. DeLanna Studi weaves together the story of the Trail of Tears in 1838-1839, the walk she and her dad did to walk the northern removal route from her family’s pre-removal homestead near present-day Murphy, NC to their home in eastern Oklahoma, and her efforts to convey the emotional impact and historical and contemporary significance of those events.  “And So We Walked” runs Nov. 14-16, 2019 at Fort Howard Hall at the Weidner Center.
