Soul Sister

When it came to fighting the power and abolishing slavery, Harriet Tubman was a total pimpstress. How else to explain that her productive life, which ended nearly 100 years ago, is still being immortalized today in productions such as Sister Moses: The Story of Harriet Tubman? Local company Desert Dance Theatre tackles Tubman’s tale of antislavery activism that included the famed Underground Railroad in a presentation that showcases Renee Davis as Tubman, African drumming, and traditional Negro spirituals.
