2nd Annual Black History Celebration: Harriet Tubman - "Guiding Us To Better Places."

Join the Billie Limacher Bicentennial Park & Theatre on the journey of Harriet Tubman, a true American hero who brought the enslaved to freedom and saved lives.  Her inspirations continue through us even today, as seen in this original three-part presentation, enjoyable for students and adults. 

On the first part of the presentation, you will experience a short stage production where you will meet Harriet Tubman, portrayed by Shayla Day-Davenport. 

Joliet resident Shayla may be recognized from Empire’s Season 2, the prison guard greeting “new prisoners” at the old Joliet prison’s “Night Behind Bars,” last fall and many appearances in past productions. 

On the second part, you will hear motivational words by Karen C. McElrath, who takes Harriet’s struggles and turns them into inspiration to help light one’s own journey today. Karen is the founder of KMC Business & Communications and is a certified professional life coach. 

The third and final part of the presentation will be a question and answer time for the audience. 

This event will be an hour long and great for ideal student field trips. The concessions will be available for sale for the 6pm presentation and the lobby opens an hour before the show. 

Admission is $5 for all ages.
