The Spirit of Harriet Tubman

Honors Institute Lecture Series
February 25, 2014 - 11:00am

Harriet TubmanJoin the PRCC Honors Institute in recognizing Black History Month.  Unable to rest as long as there are those who need guidance, The Spirit of Harriet Tubman returns time and again sharing her life story and the things she learned along the way.  Leslie McCurdy captivates her audience in The Spirit of Harriet Tubman with only a trunk of costumes and a barren stage as her landscape.  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 Honors Institute presentation is made possible through the support of the Lower Pearl River Valley Foundation.  Complimentary tickets are available by calling 601-403-1180.  Tickets will be available beginning Feb. 1, 2014.
