Known widely as a simple and courageous mother figure, in fact Harriet Tubman was an intelligent, crafty, fearless visionary who transcended assumptions about black women's abilities, leading scores of enslaved people to freedom. Author of the first adult biography of Tubman, historian Kate Clifford Larson will share new Tubman scholarship and describe recent public history initiatives related to her life and role in the Underground Railroad. Copies of Bound for the Promised Land will be available for purchase and signing.
