Harriet Tubman - A Courageous Woman

Harriet Tubman - A Courageous Woman

Posted by Cassandra on Jun 12th 2018

Harriet Tubman was born into slavery, named Araminta Ross, and later nicknamed "Moses" for her courageousness in leading former slaves to freedom through the Underground Railroad. She had reasoned in her 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."   

Tubman was determined to have freedom and escaped from slavery in 1849. She later returned to Maryland to rescue family members and other slaves. As an abolitionist and conductor of the Underground Railroad, she never lost a slave. 

"When the Civil War began, Tubman worked as a cook and nurse for the Union Army and then as an armed scout and spy. She was the first woman to lead an armed expedition in the war and guided the raid at Combahee Ferry which liberated more than 700 slaves."  Source: Wikipedia

Available is a masterpiece work of art by Artist, Darlington Dike Ike (D.D. Ike) who "took inspiration from this amazing woman in creating his relief art. The piece is a mix of darkness and colors, shadows and light, and the result is a powerful mix of emotions. You can see the tense faces of the characters as they follow the courageous Tubman, but you can also imagine the hope and excitement they felt as she led them on toward the freedom they deserved."
