Anna Howard Shaw Meets Harriet Tubman

An Eventide Arts Festival drama that poses the question, what would be the nature of a conversation between Rev. Anna Howard Shaw, one of the first female ministers who preached at the Dennis Union Church from 1878-1885 and Harriet Tubman. The dialogue has been informed by Shaw's writing and illuminates attitudes about race that permeated the Cape during the latter part of the nineteenth century.
