Social Studies come to life featuring the life of Harriet Tubman-is a classic tribute to the great American who freed herself and hundreds of people from the bonds of slavery.

This stirring drama with music is a classic tribute to the great American who freed herself and hundreds of people from the bonds of slavery. Her courage helped to change the world.

This drama with music features the life of Harriet Tubman as told by Sarah Bradford, a woman persuading a publisher to print her book, Scenes from the Life of Harriet Tubman.

The story begins with young Harriet’s early life as a slave. Soon Harriet decides she wants to be a free woman and risks her life to go North. She is later persuaded to go South as a conductor on the Underground Railroad, assisting other slaves to find their way to freedom. At the start of the Civil War, Harriet became a spy for the Union Army, and later a nurse and a scout.

Eventually the North wins the war. Ending the war does not end Harriet’s struggles for freedom. These struggles continued – not only for herself – but also for everyone who suffers inequality.

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. The audience will find a new appreciation for Harriet Tubman and a deeper understanding of her times. Her courage helped to change the world.

Share her life with your students through this musical history lesson and stirring drama.
