Listen to “Harriet”.

“Harriet” is a choreopoem by Zhana which explores themes around the sexual exploitation of African American women during enslavement.

“Harriet” tells the true story of Harriet Jacobs, author of Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, and portrays an imaginary meeting between her and Harriet Tubman. Harriet Jacobs hid in a tiny attic for seven years to escape the attentions of her white slavemaster.

Once free, she realized that freedom had always been her birthright, not something she should have to buy.
