About the piece:

Modesty is a middle-school aged girl who is struggling with bullying. She tries daily to “say nothing” and melt into the scenery so classmates won’t make fun of her. Even worse though, she is too afraid to protect her friends enduring the same abuse. In quiet moments, she escapes her fear by learning about the life of Harriet Tubman. In times of struggle, she is visited by the commanding historical figure who comforts her, offers advice, tells stories that connect to her life today, and ultimately shows how she triumphed during a moment in the Civil War of great peril with the power of love & music. With Harriet as her guide, Modesty hopes to do the same.
