WYE MILLS – Chesapeake’s celebration of Black History Month continues with the Family Series’ presentation of “The Spirit of Harriet Tubman” in the Todd Performing Arts Center on Friday, February 19, at 7 pm.
For a breathtaking hour, actor Leslie McCurdy embodies the “spirit” of Harriet Tubman and shares Harriet’s empowering story woven with words said to have been Harriet’s own.
Leslie takes the audience through Ms. Tubman’s childhood, her harrowing solo flight from slavery, her dedicated involvement with the Underground Railroad, her victorious rescue mission during the Civil War and her commitment to others in her later years.
This inspiring solo performance, by an artist described as being “of exceptional skill and grace,” teaches 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.
Tickets for the show are $20 for adults and $10 for children. For more tickets are more information please call the TPAC box office at 410-827-5867. This event has been funded in part by the Queen Anne's County Arts Council and the Maryland State Arts Council. Also, funded in part by Best Western Kent Narrow Inn – host hotel for TPAC.
