Harriet Tubman A Journey to Freedom

Harriet Tubman was born Araminta Ross around 1820 on a plantation in Maryland. She worked as a house servant for a short period of time before becoming a field hand. Harriet escaped from the bonds of slavery in the summer of 1849. She traveled by night through Maryland, Delaware and finally to Philadelphia. She made 19 trips back down south to lead other slaves, including her parents to freedom. She soon became known as the "Moses," of her people. Her trips were carefully planned and brilliantly executed by the use of the "Underground Railroad," an ever-changing series of secret hiding places. During the Civil War, Harriet Tubman served the Union Army as a spy, scout, and hospital nurse. After the war she made her home in Auburn, NY where she lived until her death on March 10, 1913.

"Joanna Maddox literally mesmerized the students with her portrayal of Harriet Tubman. It was if Harriet Tubman was standing right there in our presence. Simply wonderful. I highly recommend her performance to all ages."
Joyce Harrison Fulton Co Teacher

"It was the best performance I have ever seen at my school. I loved it."
