About the production

Shortly before Christmas day in 1854, Harriet Tubman discovered that her brothers, enslaved in Maryland, were to be sold at auction on December 26th. With a steely determination, she went back to Maryland, to the plantation where she had once been enslaved, to lead her brothers to freedom in the north. On December 29th, she, her brothers and several others walked safely into William Still's Anti-Slavery office in Philadelphia. Come hear their incredible story and how the coded messages in Spirituals helped guide the way.

Join the Go Tell It! – A Harriet Tubman Christmas Story cast on a magical journey through time. Told through Spirituals, lyrical and traditional West African dance and drumming, meet the people who had the courage and faith to trust Harriet Tubman to guide them safely to the Promised Land. Witness a story of unshakable faith, unwavering determination, and an uncompromising commitment to freedom. Leave feeling inspired and uplifted!
