A native to Maryland, Harriet Tubman is best known for her daring leadership of enslaved African Americans to freedom via the Underground Railroad Network to Freedom. In the Orangery at Hampton NHS, Janice Curtis Greene brings Harriet Tubman to life. This living history portrayal will have Harriet recounting her early years at the Brodas Plantation, the horrors of slavery, how she eventually escaped, and her involvement on the Underground Railroad. Mrs. Greene is the former president of the Griots' Circle of Maryland. This portrayal will also include songs like "Steal Away" and "Go Down Moses."

Please remember that all events and programs at Hampton are FREE and open to the public. We do not accept reservations and seating is available on a first come first seated basis. Leave plenty of time to travel to the site, park your car, and walk to the appropriate location.
