In Celebration of Black History Month

Featuring:  ¿Quién fue Harriet Tubman?


Quien fue Harriet Tubman


Born a slave in Maryland, Harriet Tubman knew first-hand what it meant to be someone's property. She was whipped by her owners and almost killed by an overseer. Harriet first heard about the Underground Railroad from other field hands, and then she traveled it by herself north to Philadelphia. Throughout her long life (she died at the age of ninety-two), and long after the Civil War brought an end to slavery, this amazing woman was proof of what one person could accomplish.

Learn more about this fascinating illustrated biography, ¿Quién fue Harriet Tubman?, from the ¿Quién fue…? Collection. 

This biography series is a great way to introduce students to important historical figures. Engaging design and format appeals to even middle and high school reluctant readers.  Read them all!
