Harriet Tubman:
When I Crossed That Line to Freedom

Composed by Dr. Nkeiru Okoye, Harriet Tubman is a two-act theatrical work that tells of how a young girl born in slavery, becomes Harriet Tubman, the legendary Underground Railroad conductor. Harriet Tubman carries the universal themes of sisterhood, courage, sacrifice and doing what is necessary to keep a family together—despite the slavery threatening to tear them apart.

“Okoye’s [Harriet Tubman] is an ensemble of achingly beautiful arias, duets, trios and choruses that recount the major episodes in Tubman’s career...”—The Baltimore Sun

Tickets: $30 - Click here for info and tickets.
