At the end of the journey, they had an opportunity to meet Harriet Tubman. Ms. Napier performed the Historic Portrait Profile of Harriet Tubman and the children enjoyed the presentation as well as the question and answer session at the end of her performance. She was awesome.

We didn’t know what to expect from Ms. Napier’s stage name “Miss LuvDrop” as we read her Bio. She explained how her stage name was given birth. When Miss LuvDrop performed, she brought LOVE, HIGH ENERGY, Drumming and an AWESOME PERFORMANCE of great Stories. We will never forget the name of “Miss LuvDrop” in Indian Springs at our first Storytelling Festival.
