Take a musical ride on the Underground Railroad to meet the heroic Harriet Tubman and learn of her early experiences as a slave. Highly acclaimed musician and storyteller, Hope Shiver, engages students in discovering how Tubman led fellow freedom-seeking slaves to hiding places on their way to safety in the North.
Soprano/storyteller Hope Shiver is an award-winning performer and writer who enjoys a varied career singing, dancing, writing and directing. She is also one of the most entertaining history teachers you’ll ever encounter. Even school history teachers agree. She receives standing ovations whenever she performs for them.
This Alabama native has brought historical characters to life for school audiences for nearly 20 years. A former college instructor, Hope Shiver began performing these musical, historical programs after realizing that many of her students not only did not know the historical significance of African American spirituals, they didn’t know them at all.
