Description

Harriet Tubman is a familiar and revered name in American history. But many are unfamiliar with the details of her remarkable story, the depth of her character, and the inner motivations that drove her. Born into slavery in Maryland in the 1820s, Harriet Tubman's resolute Christian faith would compel her to extraordinary acts of courage and sacrifice. Through her selfless efforts, hundreds of African-American slaves escaped to freedom. Tubman's tenacious trust in God and love for others earned her the title "the Moses of her people." Discover the real Harriet Tubman in this compelling documentary narrated by Alfrelynn Roberts and featuring expert interviews with leading scholars, including Dr. Eric Lewis Williams of the Smithsonian Institute and Carl Westmoreland of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. It also features remarkable early 20th century audio recordings of African-American spirituals sung by former slaves.

Editorial Reviews

An engrossing portrait of Harriet Tubman—the former slave who fled Maryland and then made numerous return trips to lead another 300 slaves to freedom on the Underground Railroad—this fine documentary narrated by Alfrelynn Roberts examines the life, remarkable courage, and dedication to human rights of Harriet Tubman, who was also called "General Tubman" and "Moses." Combining archival materials, dramatic re-creations, visits to historical sites, and compelling observations by historians from the Smithsonian and elsewhere, the film traces Tubman’s story from her oppressed childhood, to her brutal treatment at the hands of white owners, to her role as conductor on the Underground Railroad. Viewers will learn about Tubman’s wiliness in eluding capture during her daring rescues of slaves, her boldness in scouting for the Union Army in the Civil War, and her energy that was channeled toward the nascent women’s rights movement. Telling the epic chronicle of a life of incredible accomplishments achieved at tremendous risk, this is highly recommended. Aud: H, C, P. (T. Keogh)
