For a breathtaking hour, Leslie McCurdy embodies the “spirit” of Harriet Tubman and shares Harriet’s empowering story woven with words said to have been Harriet’s own.  Leslie takes the audience through Ms. Tubman’s childhood, her harrowing solo flight from slavery, her dedicated involvement with the Underground Railroad, her victorious rescue mission during the civil war and her commitment to others in her later years. This tour-de-force solo performance exemplifies that with faith, conviction and dedication the world can be changed.ermaid Theatre, Nova Scotia
