MercyfulGrace Blog Diaries with ‘Harriet Tubman’ – Rob Hicks

Harriet Tubman died on this day, a hundred and one years ago. Known as Moses to the more than 300 slaves she helped find freedom, Tubman was a fighter for abolition and women’s suffrage.

“She has a look of contempt upon her face, it can not be mistaken for anything else. It’s clearly FREEDOM” – MercyfulGrace Blog

Frederick Douglass often worked with her and admired her, writing, “The difference between us is very marked. Most that I have done and suffered in the service of our cause has been in public, and I have received much encouragement at every step of the way.

You, on the other hand, have labored in a private way. I have wrought in the day—you in the night. … The midnight sky and the silent stars have been the witnesses of your devotion to freedom and of your heroism.”

(Thank you for this, Rob Hicks)
