Special Presentation: “Millicent Sparks as Harriet Tubman”

Join us as we prepare for Black History Month with Millicent Sparks’ portrayal of Harriet Tubman, the most famous conductor of the Underground Railroad who helped thousands of enslaved Africans escape to freedom. At the conclusion of the portrayal, Sparks will interact with the congregation, responding in character to questions about Tubman’s life in slavery, the Underground Railroad, and the Civil War. Ms. Sparks develops and produces researched living history performance programs with special emphasis on the African American experience. An accomplished actor/writer/producer and lifelong history buff, she has performed on local, regional and international stages and in film and on television. Bring a guest!
