We Still Believe

REMINDER--July 13 AND 14 Strike at the Wind @ Cultural Center 8 pm

Opening night for the “Strike at the Wind!” Outdoor Drama was amazing as the actors brought the story of Henry Berry to life. The play tells the story of the Lowrie War in 1865. It chronicles the life of Henry Berry Lowrie, who led a band of men in a seven-year battle after the Confederate Home Guard murdered Henry's father and brother. Henry and the Lowrie gang exacted a vigilante justice against the Home Guard of Robeson County and those who actively oppressed the Indian people. Though the Lowrie gang were regarded as outlaws and renegades by those on the wrong end of their guns, the Indian people for whom they fought hail them to this day as Heroes.


Thank you to the cast and Jonathan Drahos for your hard work. Drahos, UNCP Professor and Director of the Theatre Program at UNCP, has directed the play for the last five years. Nearly half of the cast, including Henry’s wife, Rhoda Strong, are current UNC Pembroke students or theatre program alumni.
