Buffet lunch from Café 108 & performance by Harriet Tubman re-enactor, Maggie Moore-Holley.
About this event
Renowned abolitionist and humanitarian Harriet Tubman, as portrayed by Maggie Moore-Holley, will present her story “A Conversation with Harriet Tubman” on Wednesday, May 11 at the Auburn Public Theater's Stage Right.
Tubman lived an embattled life from childhood until her death because of the situation in which she was born. Although her life was constantly interrupted by one battle after another, she was eager to get involved in a struggle that changed the course of American history, the Civil War. She faced and overcame each new battle with the same determination, courage, and faith that helped her to “keep-a-going” against tremendous odds.
Maggie Moore-Holley, married and the mother of two adult children, is retired from the Monroe County Department of Social Services, and is a member of Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church; AKOMA, the African-American Women’s Gospel Choir; and AKWAABA, the Heritage Associates.
The $25 ticket includes a buffet lunch from Cafe 108 (sandwich, soup & salad, coffee & bottled water). Lunch will be held from 12:00pm-12:30pm, and Maggie's performance will be from 12:30pm-1:30pm.
