Friday JULY 1st – 7:00pm
WESLEYAN Chapel –
Women’s Rights National Historical Park
Continuing the Seneca Museum and the Women’s National Historical Park 2016 Partnership our next program is being presented in the Historic Wesleyan Chapel at the Women’s Rights National Historical Park. “Harriet Tubman – The Chosen One” is a dynamic one-woman show that takes its audience on one of the many journeys Ms. Tubman took on the Underground Railroad. The show celebrates the life of this great American who made her way to freedom, and then risked her freedom to free others. Watch Ms. Briley-Strand, change into more than a dozen characters, right before your eyes. See for yourself the people who helped her along the path to freedom… and the ones who tried to stop her in her tracks. Listen as she sings spiritual after spiritual showing how the enslaved used this “secret language” to communicate with one another. Join Ms. Briley-Strand as she transports you into a time you’ve only read about.
