THE ROOTS OF A BRAVE NEW WORLD

Harriet Tubman
(1820? – 1913)
In this photo, Harriet is at left with a group of former slaves.

Harriet was a brave warrior of the Light; an individual who dared to risk her life for what she believed. Deemed an American abolitionist, a fierce opponent of slavery, this physically tiny woman possessed extraordinary courage, ingenuity, persistence and iron discipline (she carried a loaded revolver to encourage the timid). She possessed the aura of a magnificent being; passionate in her quest for freedom. Harriet became the underground railroad’s most famous ‘conductor’. Rewards for her capture offered by slave owners eventually topped $40,000. Harriet was known as the “Moses of her people”.

Our brave new world wouldn’t be possible without heroes like Harriet.
