Celebrating Black History Month with TSI Board of Director Maggie

Harriet Tubman had a huge impact on black history and was often referred to as “The Moses of her People”.
She was born into slavery but was able to escape and help hundreds of other enslaved do the same using the Underground Railroad. The Underground Railroads were hidden passages as well as safe houses that helped the enslaved escape to free states and Canada.
Once she escaped, she could have enjoyed a life of freedom on her own but instead helped others, friends and family, escape too so they all could be free at last together. She helped bring an end to slavery during the Civil War by helping the Union as a scout and nurse, although at time she hardly got any praise for it.
