HARRIET (12A) - Wells Maltings

Harriet Tubman escaped slavery in 1849, travelling 100 miles on foot to find her freedom - "When I found I had crossed that line, I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. There was such a glory over everything; the sun came like gold through the trees, and over the fields, and I felt like I was in Heaven."
HARRIET (12A) tells her story, along with the dozens of other slaves she went back to free.
