The Spirit of Harriet Tubman: written and performed by Leslie McCurdy
Saturday, June 15 at 2:30 p.m. &

Tickets $22.50

Celebrate Juneteenth with The Spirit of Harriet Tubman! Leslie McCurdy invokes the 'spirit' of Harriet Tubman as she portrays the life of the famous Underground Railroad conductor, recreating stories familiar and some rarely told, using words said to have been Harriet Tubman¹s own. Through it all we learn of the faith and conviction that drove Harriet Tubman to follow her dreams; the spirit of the past connecting with the present, inspiring her charges to have the courage to do the same in envisioning their future.
The City of Roswell's Recreation, Parks, Historic and Cultural Affairs, presents Roswell Celebrates Juneteenth. A series of events and programs will take place starting Friday, June 14 and run through the weekend, ending on Sunday, June 16.
Juneteenth commemorates the effective end of slavery in the United States. Juneteenth (short for “June Nineteenth”) marks the day when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas in 1865 to take control of the state and ensure that all enslaved people be freed. Juneteenth was originally celebrated in Texas, on June 19, 1866. It marked the first anniversary of the day that African Americans there first learned of the Emancipation Proclamation, more than two years after it was initially issued. In 2021 Juneteenth was made a federal holiday in celebration and recognition of the end of slavery and to honor the culture and achievements of African Americans.
