The Legacy of Harriet Tubman: A One-Woman Performance by Cortenia Smith

Monday, Feb. 19, 2018, 2 p.m.

Celebrate Black History Month at the Anacostia Neighborhood Library! Please join us on Monday, Feb. 19, at 2 p.m.for "The Legacy of Harriet Tubman." This one-woman performance reveals the true spirit of Harriet Tubman, a legendary former slave, abolitionist and hero who defined courage and strength. Drawn from the pages of history and passionately retold by the brilliant actress Cortenia Kay Smith, it tells a story of survival, endurance and faith. 

Smith was born and raised in China Grove, North Carolina. Having always loved to sing and perform in talent shows and at local events, she went to the Center of Expression in the Arts to study acting in 1982. Smith has been studying and working on the life of Harriet Tubman since 2009 and continues to keep the dream and Harriet’s legacy alive with her one-woman performance.
 
This is a great event for the entire family. We hope to see you.
