Meet Harriet Tubman, a First-Person Historical Interpretation

March 5, 2017, 2:00 - 4:00 PM

Jefferson School, 518 Ridgewood Road, Maplewood

Inspiring actress and educator, Dr. Daisy Century of the American Historical Theater, will vividly portray Harriet Tubman, the well-known escaped slave, American abolitionist, humanitarian, and armed Union scout and spy during the Civil War. Tubman was a remarkable woman who found freedom for herself and then made sure others were brought to freedom. She rescued more than seventy slaves using the Underground Railroad and declared, “I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger.” Dr. Century as Harriet Tubman takes each-and- every audience member along for this ride.

Dr. Daisy Century considers Harriet Tubman her role model, someone who encouraged her to put others first and to lead by example. Like her inspiration, Daisy grew up on a farm, has a wonderful singing voice and is a determined woman of conviction. A naturally talented teacher and actor with a PhD in Science Education, she couples scientific methods with creative imagination to make her historical portrayals thoroughly-researched and dramatically intense.
