10SoCo Concerts: “The Spirit of Harriet Tubman” featuring Leslie McCurdy

There are many plays about Harriet Tubman, but none share her 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 words said to have been Harriet Tubman¹s own. Through it all we learn of the faith and conviction that drove Harriet Tubman to follow her dreams; the spirit of the past connecting with the present, inspiring her charges to have the courage to do the same in envisioning their future.

For 20 Years Leslie has captivated audiences across Canada, the United States and has even played in London, England! The Spirit of Harriet Tubman was presented at the 2011 National Black Theatre Festival in Winston-Salem North Carolina, 2012 DC Black Theatre Festival Living Legacy Series, Washington DC, Paul Robeson Art Is A Weapon Solo Play Festival, London England in 2013 and various festivals, Performing Arts Centres, schools and other venues with tens of thousands of audience members being thrilled with Leslie McCurdy’s performance. OCAC is so delighted to have Leslie bring Harriet Tubman to life in the Brant Ballroom.
