Classic Productions for Students: Freedom Train

About

Freedom Train tells the story of Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad.  Harriet was born a slave, but when she was 25 she made her perilous escape from a Maryland plantation.  The escape route that Harriet followed soon became known as the Underground Railroad and she quickly became one of its most celebrated "conductors," guiding more than 300 slaves to freedom.  Freedom Train is the story of self-sacrifice, dedication and survival, laced with warmth and a sense of humor that celebrates the human spirit - a universal story for all.  This show is recommended for children grades 2 and above.
