Description

Gifted storyteller, TAHIRA, shares tales of freedom fighters in this dramatic performance. She offers a compelling look at the men and women who took extraordinary risks for freedom.  The Freedom Stories program emphasizes the importance of having courage in the face of inequality and injustice.  TAHIRA can tailor the subject matter of Freedom Stories to such topics as:

Civil Rights Movement, which includes biographical narratives about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Harry and Harriette Moore, educators and NACCP members whose assassinations sparked the movement.

Black Women in History, such as human rights activist, Ella Baker, as well as Ruby Bridges, the first African-American child to desegregate an all-white elementary School in Louisiana during the New Orleans school desegregation crisis in 1960.

The Underground Railroad, includes freedom songs, such as “John the Rabbit,” which contained coded messages used by enslaved Africans to devise a plan of escape. Also, includes the story of Henry “Box” Brown who escaped enslavement by mailing himself in a box from Richmond, Virginia to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
