BEFORE SHE WAS HARRIET

by | Read by SiSi Aisha Johnson, January LaVoy, Lisa Renee Pitts, Bahni Turpin

Children Ages 6+ • 8 mins. • Unabridged • © 2017

Listeners travel back through time to explore the life of Harriet Tubman, guided by four African-American narrators. Lisa Renee-Pitts, Bahni Turpin, January LaVoy, and SiSi Aisha Johnson narrate in turn to describe Tubman’s voice rising in protest as a suffragist, the heroics of General Tubman, the secrecy of her work as a Union spy, all the way back to her childhood as a slave when her father taught her to read the stars. Sounds of horse-drawn carriages, marching soldiers, spirituals, and rushing rivers pair beautifully with the watercolor illustrations to help listeners imagine the many roles that Tubman played over her lifetime. The audiobook concludes with each narrator’s echoing intonation of those roles, listing the many accomplishments of her life and honoring her legacy.
