Natalie Daise: “Becoming Harriet Tubman” @ Hewitt Union Ballroom
Mar 3 @ 7:30 pm

Natalie Daise - Becoming Harriet Tubman

The Story of Harriet Tubman

A highlight at last summer’s Spoleto Festival in Charleston, South Carolina, actor and storyteller Natalie Daise brings to life the compelling story of the slave-turned abolitionist, Union spy, and conductor of the Underground Railroad. Told from the perspective of five characters, Becoming Harriet Tubman is a rich amalgam of history, personal narrative and song.

Natalie Daise was born in Rochester and grew up in Syracuse. Her career has included educational programming for children (including Emmy-nominated Gulah, Gulah Island, Nickelodeon 1994-97) and a range of projects with husband, Ron Daise, preserving and celebrating South Carolina Sea Island language and culture. She is a recipient of the Jean Lacy Harris Folk Heritage award for lifetime achievement, and the Order of the Palmetto, South Carolina’s highest honor.

A talk-back with the audience follows both performances.
