The Marcus Shelby Quartet: Harriet Tubman and the Blues

Shelby will tell the remarkable story of Harriet Tubman, a woman who rose out of humble beginnings, escaped slavery and dedicated her life to challenging the grave injustices in her day. Throughout her life, she worked to unite American women and men of all colors and classes in a common struggle for liberty.

"Harriet Tubman is a multilevel achievement and a landmark superior to Blood on the Fields. Where is Shelby's Pulitzer?"
