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.

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.

“It is my believe that we can be inspired by those who lived before us, who despite the obstacles they faced in life continued to pursue their dreams. Children need to be inspired to dream, achieve and believe in themselves.” – Joanna Maddox.
