The Harriet Tubman Living History Experience

 

Millicent Sparks - The Harriet Tubman Experience

Thursday, Feb. 26, at 7 p.m. 
Community Room, Abington Free Library

Family program geared for ages 8 and up 

The most famous conductor of the Underground Railroad, Harriet Tubman helped thousands of enslaved Africans to escape to freedom. Her life story is a monument to courage and fearless resolve. This living history performance depicts this 19th century icon by blending accounts of Tubman’s life with an acute sense of Tubman’s personal qualities—her emotional depth, profound spirituality and immense intelligence. Included are Negro spirituals sung by Tubman, often as coded messages designed to facilitate the guiding of her fugitives northward. At the conclusion of the portrayal, actor Millicent Sparks interacts with the audience, responding in character to questions about Tubman’s life in slavery, the Underground Railroad and the Civil War.

 

Millicent Sparks is an accomplished actor/writer/producer who has performed on local, regional and international stages (Asia, Africa and Europe) and in film and on television. Sparks was one of ten performers chosen to represent the United States at an International Arts Festival in Tanjian, China. She also was selected as the first actor to perform the “Freedom Rising” show at the National Constitution Center. Sparks, a lifelong history buff, develops and produces researched living history performance programs with special emphasis on the African American experience through her production company Millicent Sparks Productions, Inc. Sparks regularly portrays Harriet Tubman, as well as other historical figures, for school groups, community organizations, churches and special events.

Registration begins Jan. 29. Please register online, in the Library Office, call 215-885-5180, ext. 15, or email kburnham@mclinc.org.
