Watch history come alive on Saturday, February 25, as Media Fellowship House welcomes all members of the community to observe and celebrate Black History Month. We are pleased to present a program featuring Dr. Daisy Nelson Century in her portrayal of American hero, Harriet Tubman.
Harriet Tubman is famed for her work as a “conductor” on the Underground Railroad, leading hundreds of slaves to the north. Tubman also assisted the Union Army during the Civil War as a cook, nurse, scout and spy. Her work in later life was to aid impoverished former slaves and the elderly.
While Harriet Tubman’s life can be explained in print, Dr. Century’s exciting performance will add a dimension and understanding of this iconic American figure for an audience of all ages. We encourage families to attend, and suggest this program of about an hour is suited for all but the youngest toddlers.
Following Dr. Century’s presentation, we will have a special opportunity for students who have had a school project on Black History Month. Youngsters may take the stage for about five minutes to share information about a historical figure they have researched. This is an informal and voluntary part of the program which will conclude with light refreshments.
Dr. Century is an actress, speaker, author, radio talk show host and educator. She combines all this experience as a re-enactor of many figures from history. To learn more about her, please visit her website.
The free-of-charge event will begin promptly at 2 p.m. at MFH, 302 S. Jackson Street. In planning this event, we would appreciate if those intending to attend would RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Media Fellowship House continues its mission to explore and promote all areas of racial, social and economic justice, and advance the causes of a diverse community.
