Harriet Tubman was one of America’s greatest civil rights activists and a hero for the abolitionist cause.
She was born the daughter of enslaved parents in 1822 in Cambridge, Maryland. After her owner died in 1844, her family was at risk of being torn apart and sold to new owners. In communication with other enslaved people and the Underground Railroad, Harriet escaped to freedom in Philadelphia, PA. Harriet then traveled back into the slave states many times, to help guide more enslaved people to freedom in New York and Canada. Each time she did this, she risked being captured and pressed back into slavery, or worse.
Harriet Tubman’s philosophy was exemplified by her own words: “I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.”
