Holy Trinity Oxford will host “Harriet Tubman – The Chosen One” on January 29 at 3:00 pm.
“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 actress Gwendolyn 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.
This event will also feature by a presentation by Angela Crenshaw, Park Ranger on The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park. Please join us for a fascinating afternoon celebrating the life and legacy of local heroine, Harriet Tubman.
A free will donation will be accepted at the door for the play.
