A great leader of her time, Harriet Tubman, teaches kids about courage, sacrifice and compassion. Imagine living a life of hard work, no education and occasional harsh punishment and you can envision slavery in the 1800s. Harriet Tubman, like most slaves, was born and raised into slavery and longed to escape the South. Harriet was a great leader of her time, determined to advance to freedom or to die in the effort. She freed over 300 slaves between 1849-1860 and never lost one. Like Moses, she overcame tremendous obstacles to set a person free. Harriet, although illiterate, began giving lectures calling for the abolition of slavery and a redefinition of woman's rights. In 1861, when the Civil War began she served as a nurse, spy and scout for the Union army. Harriet was invaluable in all services she rendered. The pride, heritage and accomplishment of our African-American community today were built on the foundations established by courageous pioneers such as Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglas, Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr. Harriet Tubman was, and is, an inspiration to us all.
