Harriet Tubman was born into slavery and escaped to the North. Not satisfied with her own liberty, she risked her own life and freedom by returning to the South nineteen times to lead over three hundred men, women, and children to liberty by means of the underground railway. This program tells about her life and fight to help slaves escape north. Produced by Darcell King.
