Summary:
(1820-1913) Risking capture and death, anti-slavery activist Harriet Tubman led more slaves to freedom than anyone else in American history. Born into slavery on a Maryland plantation, Tubman was caught trying to escape and savagely beaten. Twenty years later, she escaped successfully to the free North, where she began her career as a conductor on the Underground Railroad, guiding more than 300 blacks to freedom. During the Civil War, Tubman assisted the Union army as a nurse, a spy and by leading a series of devastating raids on Confederate positions. After the war ended, she built a home for old and impoverished blacks in her adopted hometown of Auburn, New York. Part of the Black Americans of Achievement Video Collection that celebrates the most influential African Americans in history.

Only available in the US.
