Harriet Tubman

I would imagine I read of her in my youth but I never really knew details of her story. I am participating in the Black August Pledge and plan to learn as much as I can each day about the people  and historical moments on this calendar.

I hope you will join me. Post what you learn somewhere, maybe even here! Today I learned just how amazingly strong Harriet Tubman was. Reading a brief version of her story here I am thinking she should be more visible in my classroom. I just put the book Who Was Harriet Tubman in my Amazon cart so I can read it with my students. What an amazing female role model! Talk about strength, perseverance, passion for justice! We should all try to be more like Tubman!!
