THE MOSES OF HER PEOPLE
HARRIET TUBMAN...HER STORY!
"A DRAMATIC STORYTELLING EXPERIENCE"
BASED ON THE LIFE OF ARAMINTA HARRIET ROSS TUBMAN
AS "MINTY" SHE WAS BORN INTO AMERICA'S SLAVE SYSTEM. AS A CHILD SHE SUFFERED ABUSIVE BEATINGS. AS A YOUNG WOMAN SHE RAN AWAY TO TAKE HER OWN FREEDOM AND RETURNED TO FREE OTHERS. SHE LIVED TO SERVE HER PEOPLE AND MANY OTHERS, TILL THE AGE OF 93!
FROM 1849 - 1860 "MOSES" MADE OVER 19 TRIPS AS A MAJOR CONDUCTOR ON THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD. WITH HER UNWAVERING FAITH IN A HIGHER POWER, SHE GUIDED OVER 300 ENSLAVED AFRICANS ALONG THE EASTERN SHORE FROM MARYLAND, DELAWARE, PENNSYLVANIA, NEW JERSEY, NEW YORK TO CANADA...FOR FREEDOM!
SHOWED UNWAVERING LOVE FOR THE PEOPLE SHE LIBERATED WITH HER KNOWLEDGE OF HEALING PLANTS. SHE NURSED AND SAVED MANY LIVES ON THE BATTLEFIELDS OF SOUTH CAROLINA. SHE OPENED A HOME FOR THE AGED AND INFIRMED IN HER HOME IN ALBANY, NEW YORK.
AS SHE WAS RESPECTFULLY NAMED BY FREEDOM FIGHTER, JOHN BROWN. GENERAL TUBMAN WAS A SCOUT ALONG SIDE UNION SOLDIERS. SHE SERVED WITH A ARMY OF FREE AFRICANS AND LED A SUCCESSFUL RAID ON REBEL CAMPS DURING THE CIVIL WAR.
HARRIET TUBMAN WAS A LEADER, SOLDIER, NURSE, ABOLISTIONIST, AGE AND WOMAN'S RIGHT ACTIVIST. NO OTHER WOMAN IN AMERICAN HISTORY COMPARES TO HARRIET TUBMAN'S POWERFUL LEGACY OF COURAGE, FAITH, SACRIFICE, COMPASSION, EQUAL RIGHTS AND FREEDOM.

Comments from our students AT NORTH PENN MIDDLE SCHOOL, PENNSYLVANIA
"I thought Ms. Oni was a great speaker and helped to paint a picture of everything Harriet Tubman did and suffered through for Blacks. If she was performing again I would pay to see her."
"I thought Oni was excellent, not only was she a great performer, but she was a great singer as well!
"I thought you were good!!
"I also enjoyed the presentation. I learned a lot. You are a great speaker and I wonder what your hair looks like."
