Journeying with Harriet Tubman: Selfless, Courageous, Committed

April 25 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

- Free

Harriet Tubman (1822-1913) is an important figure in African American and the nation’s history. Heralded for escorting many slaves from bondage to freedom, her life had many riveting facets. Living History Performer Eddie Murphy brings Harriet Tubman radiantly back to life for audiences throughout the country. This program is cosponsored by Eddie Murphy and The Concord Free Public Library

A Wellsville Ohio native, Eddie Murphy spent her career working as Director of Retiree/Emeriti Activities for Hughes Aircraft Company and then UCLA, learning as she went how to fashion her own retirement; eight years ago she did just that, returning to her hometown to work on revitalization efforts as founding trustee and President of the Wellsville Community Foundation—and reenacting the words and spirit of her heroine, abolitionist Harriet Tubman, throughout the country.
