Harriet Tubman Performance

Sunday, February 25th at 1 p.m at Bristol Friends Meeting, Bristol, PA

All are welcome to join us at Bristol Friends Meeting for a one-woman performance portraying the heroic life of Harriet Tubman on Sunday, February 25th at 1 p.m. Dr. Daisy Century from the American Historic Theater features in this all-ages show that depicts Tubman’s life. Bristol Friends Meeting offers this free educational performance for the community as a way to highlight Harriet Tubman’s heroism and the role local Quakers played in the Underground Railroad right here in Bucks County. 

Dr. Daisy Century considers Harriet Tubman her role model, someone who encouraged her to put others first and to lead by example. Like her inspiration, Daisy grew up on a farm, has a wonderful singing voice and is a determined woman of conviction: once they start a project, they must see it through to completion. Harriet Tubman reveals a woman who made up her mind as a young girl that things could be better than they were, “I had reasoned this out in my mind. There was one of two things I had a right to – liberty or death. If I could not have one, I would have the other.” Tubman shows us a woman who found freedom for herself and then made sure others were brought to freedom. The brave woman who rescued more than seventy slaves using the Underground Railroad declared, “I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger.” Harriet Tubman takes each and every audience member along for this ride.

Bristol Friends Meeting is located at 235 Market St. in Bristol, PA. The performance on 2/25/24 is free. Doors open at 12:30 p.m. and the performance starts at 1 p.m.
