Harriet Tubman show at First Afrikan Church
10/25/2013, 6 a.m.
Families looking for an alternative to witches and ghouls can head over to First Afrikan Church in Lithonia for its Oct. 30 “Heritage” festival, and kids can dress up as Black History characters and family ancestors.
This year, the annual festival will feature an appearance by Harriet Tubman, re-created by New York actress Christine Dixon.
Dixon’s “Harriet Tubman Her Self” portrays scenes in the life of Tubman, a runaway slave who became the most famous “conductor” on the Underground Railroad, the elaborate secret network of safehouses organized to help slaves get to the North and freedom.
The program starts at 7:15 p.m. The church is at 5197 Salem Road.
