June 19

Memorial Hall

Harriet Tubman
Share this:

Bring the past to the present and change the future with this one-woman interactive storytelling experience. Uncover the truth about America’s 200-year-old struggle with slavery when you play a part in this historic retelling. On this journey, you’ll follow Harriet Tubman, the most recognized conductor of the Underground Railroad. Nicknamed “Moses,” Harriet Tubman lived up to her name by gaining her own freedom, as well as traveling back and forth from North to South over 19 times and freeing over 300 slaves!

Co-created by A. James Jones, Deondra Kamau Means, and Brandi Langford-Sherrill.

Shows at noon and 2 p.m. Ideal for grades 3-8

Plan Your Visit

Historic Memorial Hall is located in the heart of the revitalized arts district of Over-the-Rhine in Cincinnati, Ohio.  Sitting directly across the street from recently renovated Washington Park, and just blocks away from OTR’s bustling entertainment district, you can turn your trip to the MEMO into a whole day, or evening, of fun!

Check out Washington Park for daily activities from spring to fall, or spend the day shopping at unique, locally owned retail shops just a few streets over. Looking for a delicious meal pre-show, or a drink after a concert? You can find award-winning cuisine and cocktails at a whole host of bars and restaurants just a stone’s throw away. For details on the shops, restaurants and bars in the area, explore the interactive map below.


Where to Park

The most convenient parking option is directly across the street at the Washington Park Garage. Other options include:

  • YMCA/Elm Street Lot on Elm Street
  • Mercer Garage on Vine Street between 13th & 14th street
  • Town Center Garage on Central Parkway opposite Music Hall under WCET
  • SP+ Surface Lot situated directly between Memorial Hall and Music Hall (usually most expensive, fills quickly)
