“When I found I had crossed that line, I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. There was such a glory over everything; the sun came like gold through the trees, and over the fields, and I felt like I was in Heaven.” — Harriet Tubman
Using shadow puppetry, song, and story-telling, A Map in the Dark tells the story of Harriet Tubman, the American heroine who risked her life to rescue herself and hundreds of others from slavery. Through the eyes of Alice, a modern teenager; the eyes of the people Harriet helped rescue; and Harriet herself, A Map in the Dark tells a story of friendship, grief, and extraordinary courage.
