Music is the best teacher and no one knows this better than Patsy Ford Simms. Realizing the need for a fun and motivational way to teach the sensitive and important subject of slavery and the fight for freedom, Patsy set about the task of writing a musical for children that would accomplish this goal. She did it with flare, using Harriet Tubman as the key figure for this musical. Easy, memorable, and historically accurate, this is a must for every older elementary and middle school group. Grades 4-8.

A CD preview pack contains the complete songbook and a cassette with the full-length audio recording of a choral musical or collection.

    My kids performed this piece and the audience loved it. However, teaching it was difficult due to the editing of the music. Also, the accompaniment seems too computerized and less organic.
