An original work written & performed by The Harriet Tubman Troupe. Q&A to follow each performance with Director Juhanna Rogers & the entire cast.

In life, there are moments and people that show up and change the course of your life forever. The women on Gathering Street understand this notion very well as Ms. Paulette, a longtime resident of the building, provided many of the Black female residents a listening ear and an open heart. Ms. Paulette’s wisdom and encouragement pushes these women to grab hold of their lives even when they seem at their weakest points. When Ms. Paulette passes, these women realize that there was something they did not know about their mysterious neighbor.  Come to A Gatherin’ Place and see how Ms. Paulette helped these women navigate motherhood, career decisions, love, and self worth.

The Tubman Troupe, founded in 2018, is a performing arts group for women of color to celebrate all of who they are through performance. 

The Members of the Tubman Troupe 2019 are:

Vanessa Campbell, Cari Clark, Victoria Coit, Jourdan Cooper, Jasmine Freeman, Melody Smith Johnson, Ashley McLeod, Martina Mitchell, Kizzy Mitchell, and Juhanna Rogers. 

Director: Dr. Juhanna Rogers

Juhanna Rogers, PhD. is a motivational speaker, commentator, artist, and education activist currently residing in Central New York. Dr. Rogers earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Integrative Arts from Penn State University – Altoona. While at Penn State, she wrote, directed, and produced artistic performances that celebrated Black history and culture. Her work in theater earned her Central Pennsylvania NAACP Woman of the Year at the age of 20. Dr. Rogers went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Higher Education and Student Affairs from Indiana University and later returned to pursue her doctorate in higher education. Dr. Rogers has traveled the world exploring ways through which underrepresented populations, specifically people of African descent, can improve their lives and communities. She has become passionate about bringing narratives of the women she has met along the way to students in urban communities, and use these stories as tools for empowerment. In 2016, Juhanna and seven other colleagues made institutional history at Indiana University by being the largest group of Black women to graduate with PhDs simultaneously in the School of Education. The group of women gained national attention and were deemed The Great8. The Great8 were selected as honorees for the 2016 Ebony Magazine’s Power 100 list.
