Becoming Harriet Tubman at Brookgreen Gardens

Natalie Daise


A one-woman performance about Harriet Tubman by Natalie E. Daise

Natalie Daise presents her moving program, Becoming Harriet Tubman on Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. and again at 3:00 p.m. at Brookgreen Gardens. A one-woman performance about Harriet Tubman by Natalie E. Daise, this 60-minute production is the compelling story of the former slave-turned abolitionist, Union spy, and conductor of the Underground Railroad. 

“I portray five people who influenced Tubman’s development in becoming an iconic, historical figure,” Daise said about Becoming Harriet Tubman, the production she scripted. “Of course, I also portray Tubman. Through the eyes of others, I channel the audience to take a look at some of the moments about her life with which they are familiar. Harriet Tubman’s ties with the Lowcountry of South Carolina make her story even more relevant.”

Natalie Daise, star of TV’s award-winning Gullah Gullah Island pre-school show of the 1990s, has endeared audiences with spellbinding storytelling at past Brookgreen events. She is a recipient of the S.C. Order of the Palmetto and the S.C. Folk Heritage Awards.

Becoming Harriet Tubman takes place in the Wall Lowcountry Center Auditorium at Brookgreen Gardens. The program is free with garden admission. Reservations are required by calling (843) 235-6016.
