Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad

March 28th, 2024 at 10:30AM

Book and Lyrics by Douglas Jones Music by Ron Barnett Grades 3rd-8th

Co-produced by the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia, this stirring drama with music is a classic tribute to the great American who freed herself and hundreds of other people from the bonds of slavery.  As Harriet and her friend, Sarah Bradford, narrate her adventurous life, we share in the joys, sorrows, and challenges faced by this brave woman who changed the world through her courage. This accurate and deeply moving musical history lesson is at turns inspiring, heart-warming, and comical, full of the good humor, determination, and the charity of its subject. Your students will find a new appreciation for Harriet Tubman and a deeper understanding of her times.
