The Power of Harriet T! is the powerful, true story of Harriet Tubman, who led hundreds of enslaved people to freedom and inspired hope for thousands more. Born into slavery in Maryland in 1820, Harriet escaped to freedom at the age of 29. Not content just to be free, she risked her newfound liberty again and again to lead more than 300 enslaved people to freedom in the Northern States and Canada. Playwright Michael Miller (Touch the Sky) uses fact, speculation, and deft theatricality to tell the riveting story of the Underground Railroad’s most famous “conductor”.
