Harriet Tubman

Slavery in the United States has left deep, unhealed wounds in American society. It was a dark period in American history that saw the emergence of a number of heroes. One of these was a small woman, about five feet tall, who was a former slave. Her name was Harriet Tubman and she changed the world. After escaping from a life of slavery that left her with permanent scars including a lifelong disability, she dedicated herself to freeing other slaves and working tirelessly for equality for oppressed people.

✓ Slavery in a new world: The foundation of a new economy✓ Araminta “Minty” Ross: Harriet Tubman’s early years✓ Tubman, the freedom fighter: Her years as a conductor✓ Civil War in the United States: Tubman’s role in a country divided✓ Life after freedom: Tubman’s later years✓ Lessons learned: Tubman’s legacyAnd much more!Harriet Tubman was an uncommonly brave person who, on several occasions, put her life at risk to re-enter slave territory, and later, to assist the Union army in the American Civil War. She was the first black woman to lead an assault in the war. After the war, she dedicated herself to the cause of women’s suffrage. She used any money she made in any of her endeavors to help those less fortunate than herself, despite the fact that this caused her to live a life of poverty. She is the definition of a true American hero and her legacy includes inspiring millions of oppressed people worldwide to fight for equality. Her memory will live on as an example of a life well-done.

Review Text

  • By Mrs E P on 21 March 2017

    I had never heard of Harriet until I was offered this free book. Having now read this it has prompted me to get further books about the appalling American slave trade. Being white and British will never understand racial abuse but I hope to try and get a better idea of the fight towards black equality.

    Even though I was educated before migrating to the U.S. I had some knowledge of Harriet Tubman - BUT NOW - I know the rest of the story.
