Our drama with music begins as Harriet’s friend Sarah Bradford, author of Scenes in the Life of Harriet Tubman, is persuading a publisher to print her book. As the story unfolds we learn of Harriet’s early years in slavery, her escape to freedom, and her time as a conductor on the Underground Railroad. During the Civil War, Harriet becomes a spy for the Union Army, and later a nurse and scout. The North wins the war bringing emancipation to the slaves but that does not end Harriet’s struggle for freedom. She turns her attention to women’s suffrage and continues fighting for everyone who suffers inequality. As Harriet says, “What we are fighting now is ignorance.”

Appropriate for grades 3rd-8th

Presented by Francis Marion University Performing Arts Center
