They Can't Pull Us Up: Harriet Tubman and Her Life

They Can't Pull Us Up: Harriet Tubman and Her Life


What caused Harriet Tubman to fight back?  What political actions supported the existence of slavery?

These questions, and more, are questions that I posed to myself as I thought about why Harriet Tubman took the risks she did during her life.

Read an excerpt HERE.

There were others (i.e., Samuel Green, her parents, etc.) who also took great risks.  Read about the lives and experiences of many people who are rarely talked about in history and read the words of several famous people who helped to express the real feelings they had during this difficult time in American history.
