Slideshow Image for Harriet Tubman: Legends and Literature

About This Exhibition:

While Harriet Tubman's achievements have been celebrated for generations, the specific details of those achievements have been warped over time--resulting in a mythologized narrative that has obscured or altered many aspects of her history. In honor of the 200th anniversary of Harriet Tubman's birth, this exhibition explores depictions of Harriet Tubman in nineteenth and twentieth century literature and how writers through the years have chosen to pass on the story of this legendary woman.
