"The Spirit of Harriet Tubman" play

Yesterday students from the Pine River Institute attended a play entitled “The Spirit of Harriet Tubman”. Hosted by the Wellington County Museum, the play features Leslie McCurdy who recreates the familiar and rarely told stories of the famous Underground Railway “conductor”.  This one-woman show used Harriet’s own words in telling the story of her life from her earliest experiences as a slave, through her work on the underground railroad, to her continued commitment to others in her later years.  The play taught PRI students to follow your dreams and not let other people’s fears get in your way.
