The breathtaking courage of Harriet Tubman

Escaping slavery; risking everything to save her family; leading a military raid; championing the cause of women’s suffrage; these are just a handful of the accomplishments of one of America’s most courageous heroes. Janell Hobson details Harriet Tubman’s many fights for freedom.

This is the breathtaking courage of Harriet Tubman, an introductory animation from TED-Ed. Learn more about her life and story in person at The Harriet Tubman Byway through Maryland, Delaware, and Pennsylvania, and the Harriet Tubman National Historical Park in Auburn, New York.
