The Spirit of Harriet Tubman

Presented by Fairfield Community Arts Center at Fairfield Community Arts Center, Fairfield OH

Feb 02 2024
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 Tubman’s own.

There are many plays about Harriet Tubman, but none share her entire life story like a visit with The Spirit of Harriet Tubman.

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.

The Spirit of Harriet Tubman was a finalist for a Canadian Chalmers Award for Best New Play for Young Audiences.

Leslie has captivated audiences across the world and is the recipient of the 2017 Vigor International Award and the 2014 and 2000 Mayor’s Award for “Artist of the Year” and “Outstanding Performing Artist” of Windsor, Ontario.

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 Centers, schools and other venues with tens of thousands of audience members being thrilled with Leslie McCurdy’s performance.
