Presenter: Magelene “Maggie” Moore-Holley

Moore HolleyMagelenePortrait2017We are is pleased to welcome Magelene “Maggie” Moore-Holley to the Fairport Historical Museum as she portrays renowned abolitionist and humanitarian Harriet Tubman (1820-1913).

Harriet Tubman lived an embattled life; from childhood until her death because of the situation in which she was born. Although her life was constantly interrupted by one battle after another, she was eager to get involved in a struggle that changed the course of American history, the Civil War. She faced and overcame each new battle with the same determination, courage, and faith that helped her to “keep-a-going” against tremendous odds. Harriet will discuss in part how her struggles prepared her for war.  

Magelene (Maggie) Moore-Holley is married and the mother of two adult children. Retired from the Monroe County Department of Social Services, Maggie is a member of Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church; AKOMA, the African-American Women’s Gospel Choir; AKWAABA, the Heritage Associates, and a Harriet Tubman re-enactor.

This event is free, and is open to the public.

Location Fairport Historical Museum 18 Perrin Street, Fairport NY 14450
