Harriet Tubman: I Can't Die But Once at Milford Library on March 26

Harriet Tubman was a woman of unique qualities and abilities even though she was illiterate. She maintained an unblemished record of vigilance, and left a legacy of sacrifice and struggle.

I Can’t Die But Once weaves a tale of truth, pain, courage, and determination that takes the audience into her life – at first enslaved – her eventual escape – solicited by the United States Government for her unique talents – evading capture behind enemy lines..
