Black History Month: The Story of Harriet Tubman - famous black women

Storyboard Text

  • Stop him!
  • Going to need to check your property, ma'am. Some slaves escaped!
  • Oh my! I hope you find them soon!
  • Harriet Tubman was born a slave in 1820. After mistreatment and a serious head injury, she made her escape in 1849. She later became one of the most famous conductors of the Underground Railroad.
  • The Underground Railroad was the name people called the system of safe-houses on an escape route that fugitive slaves used. The "stations" were usually homes of abolitionists or freed slaves.
  • The Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 made it difficult for escaped slaves to remain free, even in the northern states. Harriet Tubman made over a dozen trips and led slaves to freedom!
