Harriet Tubman & the Struggle Against Slavery

“FREEDOM TRAIN” tells the story of Harriet Tubman, a young black woman, living under the yoke of slavery, who would risk her life so that others could be free. Set at a time when divisions over slavery in America threatened Civil War, Harriet escapes North from her plantation life, only to return South to lead her people to freedom as the most legendary of “conductors” on The Underground Railroad. Her life teaches us that we must sometimes “answer the call,” break the rules, and be willing to take the consequences when we do.
