|About Us: "A Visit with Harriet Tubman"|
Karol Brown is the unforgettable Aunt Harriet Tubman.
From the moment she walks on the stage until she answers all the children's questions, Karol is the elderly Aunt Harriet Tubman to everyone in the room.
The audience laughs, cries and sings with Aunt Harriet as they visit with her in the parlor of the convalescent home she founded in Auburn, New York, where she lived until she died March 10, 1913 at age 93.
For over 20 years, Karol has researched the life of Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad.
She tells stories that capture the emotions, imagination and the humanity of the women called Moses.
James Brown is a natural storyteller with a smooth tenor voice.
As Brother Ely, he asks to "borrow the minds" of the audiences, young and old to take them on a vicarious journey to travel back in time to 1912, to visit with Harriet Tubman.
Throughout the storytelling, James brings the sounds of the Negro Spirituals into the room and the audience experiences musical enchanting moments.
School children listen carefully and breakout into applause after each song.
