Actor and humanities scholar Becky Stone will perform a portrayal of Underground Railroad Conductor Harriet Tubman. Stone will teach how Harriet Tubman transformed her life from one of slavery to liberation. Harriet Tubman was an American abolitionist, humanitarian, and an armed scout and spy for the United States Army during the American Civil War.
The event is free and open to the public.
There will be an opportunity following the performance to ask questions of the actor while she is in character and out. Black History Month is celebrated annually in the month of February. ACC has had a consistent partnership with Colorado Humanities for several years.
