Harriet Tubman - Conductor on the Underground Railroad

Ann Petry

When Harriet Tubman was born a plantation slave in 1820, her parents hoped she could learn a trade, so she wouldn’t have to work in the fields. But because she defended a slave against an overseer, she became a field hand anyway. As she grew strong and learned to survive in the woods and find her way by the North Star, she dreamed of freedom. When she was almost 30, she finally made her escape, but her own freedom wasn’t enough. Risking life and limb, she became a conductor on the Underground Railroad to help other slaves flee to safety. A symbol of strength and hope, this legendary ‘Moses’ led over 300 of her people to freedom and a new life. Narrator Peter Francis James brings this powerful woman to life to inspire all of us with her compassion, bravery and moral integrity.
