What did it mean to be a slave before the Civil War? What are the roots of prejudice and the history of African-Americans? This dramatization shows the courage of Harriet Tubman. Freedom takes courage, Harriet shows the youth of today what it takes to pay the price to gain that freedom.



The Quest for Freedom: Harriet Tubman

demoShe was 29 years old, and a slave. She'd never been to school. Couldn't read or write. She had been beaten, abused, and humiliated.

Except for the few square miles around her home, she knew nothing of the outside world. And yet, one Spring evening in the year 1849, she boldly charged into a world she had never search of a place she'd never been, hoping to find something she'd never known, freedom!

Her name was Harriet Tubman, they called her Moses.

In The Quest for Freedom, we meet Harriet through the eyes of a young man from our own time--a young man who has lost the courage to dream. One day he enters a mysterious library. Suddenly he's trapped in the past as a slave on a plantation with Harriet. He discovers that without courage, there are no dreams...and without dreams, there is no future.
