CANCELED: Tryon Palace’s Cultural Arts Performances Presents: Year of the Woman – Harriet Tubman Reenactment

Thursday, March 26, 2020 - 9:15am to 12:00pm

 

In light of Governor Cooper's state of emergency declaration and guidance regarding canceling or postponing large gathers in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19, this event has been canceled. It may be rescheduled for a later date. Please pay attention to our social media and website for updates as we address this evolving issue. 

Becky Stone, a native Philadelphian, has lived in Fairview, NC for the last 38 years, where she and her husband raised their four children. Becky is a storyteller and has told stories and taught workshops throughout North Carolina. She applies her acting and storytelling skills as a Chautauquan, doing interactive presentations of influential women in history.

Today, students from local schools will have the opportunity to meet Harriet Tubman. Harriet Tubman escaped slavery to become a leading abolitionist and led hundreds of enslaved people to freedom along the route of the Underground Railroad. She’ll share her story and interact with the audience, answering questions as both Harriet and Mrs. Stone. Through her storytelling and presentation of history, Becky Stone will offer our guests a memorable and fun learning experience they won’t forget. 

Shows will begin at 9:15 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. 

The 11 a.m. performance is full. Call to reserve your seats for the 9:15 performance.

This program funded by a generous grant from Wells Fargo.
