  • Description

    A 7-foot-tall bronze sculpture of the abolitionism icon Harriet Tubman, known to all as the “Moses of her people.” Tubman was a key figure of the Underground Railroad system, which led hundreds of slaves to their freedom after escaping slavery and freeing herself.
    The sculpture is standing in front of the Teacher Education and Technology Center at Salisbury University, tens of miles from where Tubman was born in Dorchester County. It was unveiled on September 22nd, 2009.
    Created by Dr. James Hill, who worked on this project with the university’s art department students for four years. The sculpture depicts Tubman walking forward while looking behind to the people she is leading from slavery to freedom. On her shoulder stands an owl, symbolizing Tubman as a freedom fighter, while the rabbit standing in front of her is symbolizing her intuition, alertness, progress, and ability to conquer fear.
