In Celebration of Black History Month
Featuring: ¿Quién 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.
