    "Harriet Jacobs is a stirring, intricately layered work that stars Kami Rushell Smith in a performance you will find hard to forget" ~The Boston Globe. A collaboration between Underground Railway Theater and Providence Black Repertory Company, this play by Lydia Diamond brings Harriet Jacobs’ astonishing true story from the 1830s, "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl," to the stage. Diamond’s immensely sophisticated script about human oppression and how certain people rise above it enables Jacobs to reach out to us from her own era. The original author and the contemporary playwright compel us to look at our history as if for the first time in this unsparing yet beautifully poetic coming-of-age story. After selling out at Central Square Theater in Cambridge in January, "Harriet Jacobs" will run at Hibernian Hall in Roxbury two days only.
