Celebrate Harriet Tubman Day

Harriet Tubman, known as the “Black Moses,” was born in Maryland as a slave in the 1820’s. After escaping and freeing herself, she became a conductor in the Underground Railroad – a secret network of routes to escape slavery. She freed hundreds of slaves, never losing a passenger.

“I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves”

“I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves”



Tubman died on March 10th, 1913, which became the date to honor of the anti-slavery activist. Her courage, heroism, and legacy are present in her many landmarks spread all over the US and Canada, making her one of the most commemorated females in North America.
