Journey back to 1902 and sit for a while on the porch with a famous American heroine, Harriet Tubman, as she tells about the exciting adventures of her life. We meet her at age 80 - but she takes us back to the days of the Civil War and its aftermath, when she led the "Underground Railroad" that helped slaves find freedom in the North. In this two-character play, Harriet is joined by a guitar-playing neighbor. Letters to Harriet Tubman is interspersed with lively Civil War songs and African-American spirituals; including "Go Down Moses," "Steal Away," and "Battle Hymn of the Republic."
