Students at Kennedy Middle School in Rockford saw a performance about the former slave Thursday. Professional actress and storyteller Anna Johnson Webb put on the show.

Tubman lived during the turbulent years before and during the Civil War.

Thursday’s event allowed students to experience a part of what life may have been like during that time. It's part of the school's month-long recognition of Black History Month.
