A painting of Harriet Tubman
by Linda Ruiz- Lozito
On the 77th anniversary of
her death, George Bush
declared March 10th 1990 as
Harriet Tubman Day, stating
in the proclamation that the
holiday was to “remember
her commitment to freedom
and rededicate ourselves to
the timeless principles she
struggled to uphold. Her
story is one of extraordinary
courage and effectiveness in
the movement to abolish
slavery and to advance the
noble ideals enshrined in our
Nation's Declaration of
Independence”.
Araminta ‘Minty’ Ross, more
popularly known as Harriet
Tubman, is possibly one of
the most notable players in
the 19th century abolitionist
movement, the Underground
Railroads. Her story begins
circa 1822, born to African-
American slaves
