Tubman

August Wilson Cultural Center
980 Liberty Avenue
Pittsburgh, PA 15222

Written and performed by Lacresha Berry.

August Wilson Cultural Center in partnership with HI-ARTS presents TUBMAN. This one woman show presents the story of Harriet Tubman re-imagined as a young woman growing up in Harlem through a theatrical lens. Harriet Tubman is a heroine and American legend in her own right. This session will take the story of Harriet in the 19th century and places her in the 21st century; laced with the problems facing African-American youth all over the country. And especially focusing on the mistreatment of black girls in schools. What would happen if a young woman like Harriet became a leader in this new world? Would her struggle be the same? Would she know her power? This play examines the centuries old fight with race, gender, and equality through a theatrical lens centered around the most influential female leaders in American history.
