The Spirit of Harriet Tubman

Written and performed by Leslie McCurdy, this powerful one-woman show is a captivating lesson in history and artistry that shares the story of legendary underground railroad conductor, nurse, and spy, Harriet Tubman. For a breath-taking hour, Leslie McCurdy invokes the spirit of Harriet Tubman, captivating audiences as she portrays the life of the famous Underground Railroad conductor, recreating stories familiar and some rarely told, using words said to have been Harriet Tubman's own. Through it all, we learn of the faith and conviction that drove Harriet Tubman to follow her dreams, the spirit of the past connecting with the present, inspiring her charges to have the courage to do the same in envisioning their future. Described as a "powerful, must-see performance" and "something the whole family can enjoy!"
