VIRTUAL TALK: “She Came to Slay: The Life and Times of Harriet Tubman” with Erica Dunbar
June 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
SHE CAME TO SLAY
The Life and Times of Harriet Tubman
Everybody knows she was one of the most famous conductors on the Underground Railroad. Everybody knows she risked her life to lead hundreds of slaves to freedom. But there’s so much more to know about the indomitable and indefatigable Harriet Tubman. She was a fierce suffragist, advocate for the aged, and spy for the Union army. She was also the first women to lead an armed expedition during the Civil War. This powerful mix of pop culture and scholarship blends traditional biography, illustrations, photos and engaging sidebars to illuminate the life of this American icon as never before. Interesting sections like “Harriet By the Numbers” reveal how many times she went back down south, how many people she rescued and even the bounty on her head. “Harriet’s Homies” gives a shout out to the many people who supported her over the years. Dunbar’s last book Never Caught: The Washingtons’ Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge was a 2017 finalist for the National Book Award in nonfiction and a winner of the 2018 Frederick Douglass Book Award. Expect good things from She Came to Slay, too.
