Dr. Daisy Century as Harriet Tubman

 

Harriet Tubman escaped slavery to become a leading abolitionist and perhaps the most well-known of all the Underground Railroad's "conductors." During a ten year span she made 19 trips into the South and escorted over 300 slaves to freedom, and, as she once proudly pointed out to Frederick Douglass, in all her journey's she "never lost a single passenger."

 

As a historical reenactor. Dr. Century has traveled all over the United States portraying historical figures from history. She defines her role as Historical Interpreter because she becomes that character.
