Spirituals, Harriet Tubman & The Underground Railroad

This presentation begins with Harriet Tubman appearing, announcing her return through the annals of time to speak to today's generations. After her speech, she introduces ARISE who enter singing one of the songs from the Underground Railroad (UGRR). Swing Low Sweet Chariot, Keep Yo' Lamps Trimmed and Burnin', Steal Away and Follow The Drinking Gourd, songs that Harriet Tubman cited as having been used to facilitate escape through UGRR, will be highlighted and taught, including the stories behind them.
