Karol Brown is the unforgettable Aunt Harriet Tubman. 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. Karol tells stories that capture the emotions, imagination and the humanity of the woman 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 musically enchanting moments. Ticket price includes a menu choice of one of the following selections: Maryland-Style Crab Cakes: Two Maryland-style crab cakes pan seared and served with lemon tarragon cream. Grilled Pork Chop: Grilled thick-cut pork chop with sweet and savory maple-braised onions. All meals are served with a salad, sides, and a delectable desert.
