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

Thursday, Feb. 22, 2018, 6 p.m.

Celebrate Black History Month at the William O. Lockridge/Bellevue Neighborhood Library. Please join us on Thursday, Feb. 22, at 6 p.m. for "The Legacy of Harriet Tubman" featuring the brilliant actress Cortenia Kay Smith. 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 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 Tubman since 2009 and continues to keep the dream and Tubman’s legacy alive with her one-woman performance.
 
This is a great event for the entire family. We hope to see you.
