Harriet Tubman was a brave woman who worked as a Union spy and nurse during the Civil War. She rescued more than 70 slaves using the Underground Railroad. Tubman encouraged people to put others first and claimed that during her Railroad days, “I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger.” Dr. Century's portrayal will take each and every audience member along for this ride!
