“John Tubman, stop your foolishness. You are a free man with a high woman eyeing you. What do you want to marry me for?” BROWN SKINNED GAL is John’s answer to that question from Harriet in Nkeiru Okoye’s celebrated opera Harriet Tubman: When I Crossed that Line to Freedom. Harriet is a slave and John is a free man, but she’s the woman he wants to be with all the same, he says, as he opines about her beauty in this flirtatious, ragtime aria for baritone and piano.
