    - SOCIAL JUSTICE + RUNNING = FREE MOVEMENT

    Why running?

    We want to build healthier lifestyles, and we want to create more social (and so more sustainable) social movements. Running, walking, and running together is a great way to do both. By coming together to exercise, we enhance each other’s wellness while crossing lines of race, gender, class, culture and faith in fellowship, solidarity and conversation. We gain the energy, courage and momentum to inspire change.



    To join is simple. Just show up and ready to participate!! You are welcome to one of our t-shirts. Every once in awhile, we’ll pitch you an event, like an artists workshop, political gathering or community dinner, and we’ll need your email for that, but that’s about it. Most Free Movement events are free, but if you’re anxious to contribute, we’re happy to take a donation.

    - South Pacific

    Music by Richard Rodgers
    Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
    Book by Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan
    Adapted from Tales of the South Pacific by James Michener

    Wednesday, August 2 – Sunday, August 6
    Friday, August 11 – Sunday, August 13
    Friday, August 18 – Sunday, August 20

    Based on the stories of a real-life Navy commander, South Pacific brings island life during World War II to the stage through deeply felt drama, unconventional love affairs, and some of the most recognizable songs in Broadway history. “Bali Ha’i”, “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair”, “There is Nothing Like a Dame”, “Younger Than Springtime”, “I’m in Love with a Wonderful Guy”, and “Some Enchanted Evening” are just the beginning. The heart of this musical is two parallel love stories, each tested by the dangers of war and the perils of discrimination. Hilarious, heartbreaking, and thought-provoking, South Pacific’s portrayal of prejudice and war is as relevant today as when it first thrilled audiences and won both the Tony for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

    Follow curved oyster-shell paths through our lush Victorian garden shaded by 150-year-old magnolia trees. Climb the stairs to the elegant main entrance surrounded by soaring columns and gleaming windows. Hear the stories of the Bellamy family, as well as those of the free and enslaved black artisans who built the home and crafted intricate details throughout the house. Know that you are walking through history.

    Welcome to the Bellamy Mansion Museum, one of North Carolina's most spectacular examples of antebellum architecture. Located in downtown Wilmington, the mansion was built for physician and planter John Dillard Bellamy, his wife, Eliza McIlhenny Harriss, and their nine children on the eve of the Civil War. The mansion now serves as a museum of history and the design arts, offering daily tours and many dynamic educational and cultural programs throughout the year. Tour the magnificent 10,000-square-foot home, visit the meticulously-recreated gardens, and walk through the recently restored Slave Quarters, one of very few preserved urban slave quarters in the country.

    Plan your visit to the Bellamy today for an extraordinary stroll through the past, present and future of this historic site.

    Based on the stories of a real-life Navy commander, South Pacific brings island life during World War II to the stage through deeply felt drama, unconventional love affairs, and some of the most recognizable songs in Broadway history. “Bali Ha’i”, “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair”, “There is Nothing Like a Dame”, “Younger Than Springtime”, “I’m in Love with a Wonderful Guy”, and “Some Enchanted Evening” are just the beginning. The heart of this musical is two parallel love stories, each tested by the dangers of war and the perils of discrimination. Hilarious, heartbreaking, and thought-provoking, South Pacific’s portrayal of prejudice and war is as relevant today as when it first thrilled audiences and won both the Tony for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
