    Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Experience history through “The Spirit of Harriet Tubman” as Gibsonville performer Diane Faison brings the famed abolitionist to life at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 26, at the Asheboro Public Library. The one-woman show is sponsored by the Friends of the Library in honor of Women’s History Month. It is free and the public is invited. Tubman, born in 1822, escaped a brutal existence as an enslaved person to establish the Underground Railroad and advocate tirelessly for abolition. She served in the United States Army during the Civil War, and afterwards became an advocate for women’s suffrage. An art teacher in North Carolina and Virginia for 25 years before retiring, Faison wanted students to feel history, rather than just researching it. She studied Tubman’s life and developed her one-woman play, which her husband, a history teacher, asked her to perform for his students. Since then, she has performed multiple times each month for close to 30 years in schools, colleges, libraries, churches and retirement homes. A Winston-Salem native, Faison holds a bachelors of arts in art appreciation from North Carolina Central University. She has received grants from the Winston-Salem and Alamance arts councils, and the Puffin Foundation. The Asheboro library is located at 201 Worth Street. For further information, call 336-318-6803.
