The Spirit of Harriet Tubman

There are many plays about Harriet Tubman, but none share Tubman’s entire life story like a visit with The Spirit of Harriet Tubman. Leslie McCurdy invokes the “spirit” of Harriet Tubman as she portrays the life of the famous Underground Railroad conductor, recreating stories familiar and some rarely told, using Harriet Tubman’s own words. Through this theatrical presentation, we learn of the faith and conviction that drove Harriet Tubman to follow her dreams. For 20 years, McCurdy has captivated audiences across Canada, the United States, and England. The Spirit of Harriet Tubman was presented at the 2011 National Black Theatre Festival in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, the 2012 DC Black Theatre Festival Living Legacy Series in Washington, D.C., the Paul Robeson “Art Is A Weapon” Solo Play Festival in London, England, and many other festivals.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
