Did you know that Harriet Tubman was one of the most significant abolitionists in American history? "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, for no man should take me alive. I should fight for my liberty as long as my strength lasted, and when the time came for me to go, the Lord would let them take me." - Harriet Tubman #blackhistorymonth#harriettubman
#repost @meeeeeee2015 with @get_repost ・・・ #blackhistorymonth Harriet Tubman escaped slavery to become a leading abolitionist. She led hundreds of enslaved people to freedom along the route of the Underground Railroad. Born into slavery in Maryland, Harriet escaped to freedom in the North in 1849 to become the most famous conductor on the Underground Railroad. Tubman risked her life to lead hundreds of family members and other slaves from the plantation system to freedom on this elaborate secret network of safe houses. A leading abolitionist before the American Civil War, Tubman also helped the Union Army during the war, working as a spy among other roles. After the Civil War ended, Tubman dedicated her life to helping impoverished former slaves and the elderly. #harriettubman#blackexcellence#blacklivesmatter#abolition#undergroundrailroad
