Feb 2- Harriet Tubman [Araminta Ross](1820-1913)
Harriet Tubman is best known for taking a lead role as a conductor of the Underground Railroad and bringing tons of slaves to freedom. She had first escaped herself, more than 90 miles from the South to the North, and would return to guide her family and friends to freedom.“When I found I had crossed that line, I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. There was such a glory over everything; the sun came like gold through the trees, and over the fields, and I felt like I was in Heaven.”
She helped John Brown bring together the small crew for the raid of Harper's ferry which was unfortunately a suicide mission for Brown who was lynched. However, the fight was done with the passion for freedom and he was a martyr to her.
Harriet Tubman also deserves credibility for the work she did in the Union Army during the American Civil War where she was a cook and nurse and eventually a scout and spy. Being a black woman in the war made it extremely difficult for people to take account of what she has done, and this was fortunately not lost.
Notably, Tubman also led an expedition that freed more than 700 slaves in South Carolina during the war. -In 2016 the U.S treasury mentioned Harriet Tubman replacing Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, which I am honestly looking forward to because she is so much more deserving. ❤
DAY 2: In honor of Black History Month, here's a 30 minute sketch of Harriet Tubman.
Born a slave in Maryland in the year of 1822 under the name of Araminta Ross. She was an American abolitionist, humanitarian and an armed scout for the U.S. Army during the American Civil War. This pistol packin' momma was an all around bada$$ and ultimately sets one hell of an example for not only the black community but for women as well.
Ill try to kick out one of these a day for the month of February. What I need from you are suggestions. Any public figure that represents the meaning of Black History Month to you. It can be anyone of color in politics, sports or the arts.
Thanks to @verylazydaisy for this great suggestion!
Born into slavery in the early 1820s, Harriet Tubman, aka Araminta Ross, became one of the most successful conductors on the Underground Railroad – the secret route used to free slaves in the south.
We’re loving this simple and beautiful board book for the littlest readers ages birth to 3. Not only is it perfect for fitting into small little hands, it gives readers a nice overview of who Harriet Tubman was and what she stood for. Perfect for reading during Black History Month or any time of the year.

Harriet Tubman escaped slavery #September17
On September 17, 1849, Harriet Tubman ( 1822 – March 10, 1913), who was born under the name (#AramintaRoss ) escaped slavery from the Popar Neck Plantation in Maryland with her brothers Ben and Harry. Shortly afterward, her brothers changed their minds about the escape and returned to the plantation with Harriet. But #freedom was on her mind and in her heart, so she soon escaped again only to return later to help her family flee to freedom.
Harriet Tubman was one of America’s leading #abolitionist during the nineteenth century and is said to have began her work on the Underground Railroad on April 20, 1853.
Born as a slave in #Maryland , Ms. Tubman led hundreds of slaves to freedom via the network of safe houses known as the #UndergroundRailroad .

Araminta Ross a.K.a,,,,Harriet Tubman said: I freed a thousand slaves. I could've freed thousands more if they would've known they were "SLAVES"....✊🏾✊🏾 2020 $20 i need those TUBMAN'S..... #AramintaRoss#HarrietTubman#weout1849
I got this cool gift to stamp out the legacy of racist ass #AndrewJackson by replacing it with that of #AramintaRoss aka #HarrietTubman (as most of us know her by her slave name) We all know the US is set to replace his image on the $20💵 soon, but for myself & the person that gifted me this, the replacement cannot happen soon enough. So Ive been given this gift to take preemptive action & erase AJ's legacy, one $20💵bill atta time 😌
"A passionate debate about action is important but it should never be mistaken for action itself....as we fight amongst ourselves on how to defeat the enemy, the enemy takes more ground in this war every day".....Maaannnn so many quotes i could take from tonight's episode. @appleofhisai did her thing portraying Minty aka Harriet Tubman!!!! She definitely deserves an Award for this powerful performance. If you are not watching Underground, you're missing out. ✊🏿✊🏿✊🏿✊🏿 #Minty#AramintaRoss#HarrietTubman#Underground#UndergroundWGN#Powerful#WCW

Mark your calendars for Before She Was Harriet coming November 2017 from @holidayhousebks! That cover though...wow! After seeing today's alarming statistics about the diversity gap in children's books, I'm excited to see this one is written by a black author and illustrated by a black illustrator! #ownvoices#beforeshewasharriet

Fact: Harriet Tubman was born a slave, her parents named her Araminta “Minty” Ross. She changed her name in 1849 when she escaped.
