The Surprising Life of Harriet Tubman

18 minutes

What do you know about Harriet Tubman? Yes, she was a courageous conductor on the Underground Railroad, helping hundreds of enslaved Africans to escape to freedom. But her courage, skills, and talent extended far beyond those night-time "trips" through swamps and darkness following the North Star. In honor of Harriet Tubman Day (March 10), Doug and Robin discuss the little-known and surprising side of Harriet Tubman and her contributions to the enslaved Africans, the sick, and the infirm.  And, yes, she was an ardent suffragette as well! Listen to their uncommon conversation and join the celebration of Harriet Tubman Day!
