    Harriet Tubman Statues by Jane DeDecker Across the US

    Harriet Tubman, the human rights activist and Abolitionism icon, is commemorated with a statue, created by the known Colorado sculptress Jane DeDecker.
     
    Tubman was an enslaved woman who escaped to freedom. Her courage led her to become one of the most important figures at the Underground Railroad, helping hundreds of slaves to their freedom.
     
    The bronze statue depicts Tubman holding the hand of a boy, guiding him along the Underground Railroad trail. A quote by Tubman’s is inscribed on the pedestal below:

    “Children if you are tired,
    keep going.
    If you’re hungry,
    keep going.
    If your scared,
    keep going.
    If you want a taste of freedom,
    Keep going”

    “Children if you are tired,
    keep going.
    If you’re hungry,
    keep going.
    If your scared,
    keep going.
    If you want a taste of freedom,
    Keep going”

     

    Several identical copies of the statue are located across the US:

    • Ypsilanti, Michigan – unveiled on May 21st, 2006. A plaque near the statue is describing Tubman’s life and legacy.
    • The entrance of Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas.
    • The Campus of Brenau University in Gainesville, Georgia. It was given to the University in September 1997 and was placed near the library. In 2017, it was moved to the front lawn to be more accessible to the public.
    • In Harriet Tubman Park in Las Sendas Mesa, Arizona – unveiled in 1995.
