A Tribute to African American Mothers: Jacobs' daring escape from slavery to self-imposed imprisonment and, ultimately, to freedom!

Harriet Jacobs  by Lydia Diamond; Directed by Amini Johari-Courts

Fri., Sat. & Mon., November 16-17 & 19:  8 p.m.; Sun., Nov. 18:  3 p.m. – The Lab Theatre

Inspired by Jacobs’ biography, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, Diamond chronicles with brutal honesty the hardships Jacobs endured.  Her daring escape from slavery into years of self-imposed imprisonment, from which she watched her children grow up, is a tribute to African American mothers.
