Harriet Tubman & The Underground Railroad
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.
