About the event

Introduce your students to a real-life heroine who led 300 people from slavery to freedom, served the Union army during the Civil War, and was one of the most prominent voices in the push for women's voting rights. Harriet Tubman was born enslaved, but from the time she was a child, she knew that she had to be free. After several attempts to steal herself away, she finally succeeded in escaping to the North - and that's just the real beginning of an inspirational true-life adventure story. Harriet went on to go South and back dozens of times, eventually bringing over 300 people up to freedom. In addition, she worked as a nurse and a spy with the Union Army, and after the war, became a prominent voice for suffrage for American women.
