“I have seen Dr. Century perform all of the characters.  When she transforms from one character

to another you would think that maybe one would not be as great as the other but they are all

equally well done, polished, genuine, inspiring, and awesome!  Hollywood and Broadway what

are you waiting for?”

Tammy P. Yeadon-Network Engineer-AT&T

“Dr. Century’s portrayal of Harriet Tubman was an absolutely powerful experience.  She has an amazing storytelling ability.  Her portrayal of  Harriet Tubman was so moving and real it brought tears, and I wasn’t the only one in the room dabbing my eyes.”

Ann Post- Program Manager- Smithsonian Associates- Washington, D. C.


“I selected Dr. Century’s interpretation of Bessie Coleman, having little prior knowledge about the historic individual.  By the end of Dr. Century’s performance, I felt personally connected to Ms. Coleman.  Dr. Century not only conveyed Bessie’s struggle through historical facts, but also through the far more difficult task of conveying Bessie’s emotions so the audience could actually experience them.  I witnessed expressions from frustrations to joyous exultation, not only on Dr. Century’s face but also on every face in the audience.  Her ability to achieve this is a true mark in Historical Interpretation.”

Daniel Prebutt-Acting Training Specialist- Federal Hall N. Memorial- New York City

“We were so happy to have Dr. Daisy Century here for her performance of Sojourner Truth:  Ain’t I a Woman?  Dr. Century embodied the heart of Sojourner and engaged the audience throughout the entire program.”

Nicole DeMatteo- Branch Manager-Pt. Pleasant Boro Branch Library- Ocean County Library New Jersey

“Dr. Century’s presentation of Harriet Tubman is educational, inspiring, motivating, humorous, and very innovative.  Dr. Century is the embodiment of the spirit of Harriet Tubman.  I recommend that everyone experience this journey to freedom that Dr. Century takes you on through the spirit of Harriet Tubman.”

Elder Carlie Towne-Minister of Information-Gullah/Geechee Nation-Charleston, South Carolina


“Dr. Century was captivating in her performance of the Life of Sojourner Truth.  Her presentation kept the attendees mesmerized by her approach to presenting the highlights of Ms. Truth’s story.  We are looking forward to having her back in Battle Creek to share additional historical reenactments that reflect our history on both  a local and national level.”

Dr. Velma Laws Clay—Sojourner Truth Statue Chairperson—Battle Creek, Michigan

“Dr. Daisy Century’s character portrayals bring history to life in such a way that her audience experiences the raw emotions and happenings that shaped the person we learn of.  I cannot speak highly enough of her interpretations nor her choice of characters.  I have personally witnessed Dr. Century act the part of Sojourner Truth, Bessie Coleman, and Harriet Tubman, and have had ever larger audiences from year to year.  I was also moved to partner with local schools and groups to insure that the benefit of her performance would be farther reaching.  Adults and school children from grades 3 & up alike were equally amazed, fully engaged, and at the ready with many questions following each performance.  Her patience and extensive knowledge come through loud and clear, and the long-lasting impression leaves a soulful imprint of empathy and understanding.”

June Schneider-Principal Librarian-Branch manager-Ocean County Library-New Jersey

“Yours was a brilliant depiction of the life of those in slavery.  You made it so real to us.  I want to pass along to you… some of the words of praise…..extraordinary, flawless, a born actress, so very lovely, a riveting performance.”

“I Think that your portrayal of Harriet Tubman today at the Chester Senior Center was beautiful,

touching, and most moving.  I could see it in my mind as you presented each phase of the

journey.  Thank you so very much and may the blessings of God continue to be with you and

your family, and that many doors be open to you.”

Jannie McDonald, Chester Senior Center
