Join us for an interesting and interactive afternoon of learning with a live performance of Harriet Tubman: A Woman with a Railroad by New London’s own Adwoa Bandele-Asante. This program is free and open to all.
This one-woman show, written and performed by Adwoa Bandele-Asante is arguably the best post-Civil War portrayal of Harriet Tubman to date. Through the story of Harriet Tubman’s struggle for freedom from slavery and inclusion as an American citizen, Adwoa demonstrates how faith, courage, and commitment inspired this great woman warrior, healer, and builder of the twentieth century.
Harriet Tubman is an inspiration for many. She was a woman of very humble means who used diligent work, good common sense, and faith to accomplish much. She continues to inspire conscious and downtrodden people throughout the world today.
