The Spirit of Harriet Tubman




On Tuesday March 20, Fossil Hill had the amazing honour of hosting Leslie McCurdy and her one-woman performance of "The Spirit of Harriet Tubman". The students had the opportunity to be brought back in time to the early 1800's where people of colour were sold as slaves. The students were captured by her performance and were eager to learn more about Harriet Tubman in question time after the show. McCurdy gave an educational and entertaining performance about the life of Harriet Tubman and her courageous journey to rescue people who had been captured by slavery like herself. She taught the students of Fossil Hill the true meaning of courage and sent the message that anyone no matter the race, religion, gender, income, etc, can make a difference if they believe. 

A big thanks goes out to Leslie McCurdy for the hard work she put into the performance and for a breath-taking show.
