Come celebrate Black History Month by stepping back in time with Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad! This program is presented by historical actress Joanna Maddox in partnership with Calhoun-Gordon County Public Library and the GEM Theatre.

Joanna Maddox has appeared in numerous national television programs including “In the Heat of the Night” and the “Tonight Show” with Jay Leno. Her Divas Tribute, “Lessons from the Divas” has taken her from Las Vegas, Nevada to Paris, France. She performs in schools, festivals, universities, museums, libraries, churches and theatres nationwide.
