Today we honor Maryland's own, Harriet Tubman, for the strength, bravery, and courage she exhibited when she first attempted to free herself from the bonds of slavery on this day in 1849.
Born a slave in Dorchester County, Maryland, Tubman personally led 70 slaves to freedom. She would go on to be a scout, spy, a nurse in the Civil war, and a fighter for women’s rights.
"Harriet Tubman fought to ensure freedom and equality for all. Join us in honoring her memory by voting in the upcoming election on November 3rd, 2020." - Chanel Compton, BDM Executive Director
