The Spirit of Harriet Tubman was a finalist for a Canadian Chalmers Award for Best New Play for Young Audiences, though it is a play for all ages, and her second play Things My Fore-Sisters Saw, about four Black women who impacted Canadian History, was featured on the Canadian Bravo Network. A two-person adaptation of the latter play entitled Voice of the Fore-Sisters was commissioned by Black Theatre Workshop in Montreal Quebec for one of its more successful school tours. Leslie has also written a version of Harriet Tubman's story for the kindergarten through grade two age range called Harriet is My Hero.
