Harriet Tubman Herself
Curriculum: Language Arts, Social Studies, Cultural Understanding
An entertaining and educational one-woman show based on the life and times of Harriet Tubman. Harriet's harrowing and dangerous life unfolds as she tells the moving story of how she brought hundreds of slaves - and her own family - to freedom during the Civil War. Actress Christine Dixon tells the story of Tubman's life in this dramatic one-woman performance about the heroic "Moses" of her p[eople. The Performance was originally adapted and directed by Morna Murphy Martell from the 1868 book by Srah Bradford, Scenes in the Life of Harriet Tubman. Audience members are invited on stage to help tell her story. The show includes original and reinterpreted music from period spirituals.
