Harriet Tubman is well known for her 19 trips down South along the secret route known as the Underground Railroad to save over 300 other Africans from the brutality of slavery. Mary portrays Harriet Tubman during her years as a slave, her journey to freedom and her endeavors to help others flee northward. Harriet’s story is one of triumph and survival under the harshest conditions one can imagine. Mary brings Harriet’s story to life with her uniquely expressive vocalizations and visually exciting physical movements creating a cavalcade of characters that reflect historical and contemporary attitudes.
2 Performances: Feb. 15 & 16.
