Call Me No Hero: The Life of Ernest “Boots” Thomas in Story

November 8 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EST


Ernest "Boots" ThomasAn Oral Storytelling Performance by Robyn A. Rennick

Before he led the charge on Mount Suribachi, before he raised the flag on Iwo Jima, before he gave his life for freedom, Ernest Ivy Thomas was a boy. A boy who rode bikes, played with his best friend, fell in love for the first time, bagged groceries. A boy with a big dream and big values.

In “Call Me No Hero,” Master Storyteller Robyn A. Rennick brings to life a boyhood in small town Monticello, Florida, the community that shaped a humble hero. Follow Boots and his men as they fight on Iwo Jima and raise the first American flag over the Japanese empire. Boots’ courage and leadership led to his ultimate sacrifice. This is storytelling. Stirring, inspiring, thought-provoking, unforgettable. This is Boots.
