    About

    Sister Moses: The Story of Harriet Tubman presented by Huston-Tillotson University is a powerful music/dance/drama featuring Desert Dance Theatre with Renee Davis as Harriet Tubman, and traditional spirituals sung by the Huston-Tillotson University Concert Choir. Additional performances include the Narrator/Voice of Harriet by Renee Morgan Brooks, African drumming and music direction by Step Raptis, a string quartet, and local actors and dancers.
    The unique blend of this multidisciplinary presentation highlights the most important episodes of Harriet Tubman’s life, and shares the knowledge and experience of her struggles and accomplishments that will bring a source of inspiration to our audience.

    The program follows Tubman’s life as a young slave on a Southern Plantation, her attempts to escape slavery, her work on the Underground Railroad, and her contributions to the Abolitionist movement. Slave songs from that period are featured for their significance as a means of passing information among the slaves. Hidden in the lyrics were vital escape details.

    Sister Moses brings history to life through music, dance and drama. Sister Moses is entertaining, educational, and truly inspirational!
