She has read all the biographies of Parks and examined pages and pages of supplemental material related to the Civil Rights Movement in America, according to American Historical Theatre. Ford earned an associate degree in literature, arts and philosophy from Camden County College, and a bachelor’s of fine arts degree in theatre studies from Montclair State University.

Funding for the program is provided by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts through Salem County Board of Freeholders and Salem County Cultural and Heritage Commission.
