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

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.
