FORMER PHILADELPHIA EAGLES LINEBACKER JEREMIAH TROTTER STARS IN
Tinsel & Tine attended Philadelphia Red Carpet Premiere held at the Perelman Theater at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, September 17th for THE NORTH STAR, starring former Philadelphia Eagles Linebacker Jeremiah Trotter. The movie was filmed in Bucks County, PA over 24 days during the summer of 2012.
In my 20's I belonged to a long standing community playhouse in Buckingham PA. called Town & Country Players. My sister and I were the only two black members the whole time I belonged. It didn't bother us, and we were always accepted, but it's funny now to learn that Buckingham, PA. was a place of refuge for runaway slaves in the late 1800 and that these slaves worked and lived in harmony with the white community of Mt. Gilead Church on Buckingham Mountain. - Le Anne Lindsay, Tinsel & Tine Editor
Red carpet attendees: Jeremiah Trotter, Doylestown, PA native Writer and Director Thomas K. Phillips, and Producer and former Executive Director of the NAACP, Dr. Benjamin Chavis Jr., along with key members of the cast.
