Harriet Tubman, an African-American abolitionist, humanitarian, and Union spy during the American Civil War. Born into slavery.


I wish we learnt more about Harriet Tubman at school. She's more than an inspiration.


"If you hear the dogs, keep going. If you see the torches in the woods, keep going. If there’s shouting after you, keep going. Don’t ever stop. Keep going. If you want a taste of freedom, keep going." - Harriet Tubman. [Applies to many situations. More wonderful older women at ]


Harriet Tubman marries John Tubman. In 1844 at the age of 25, she married John Tubman, a free African American who did not share her dream.Since she was a slave, she knew there could be a chance that she could be sold and her marriage would be split apart. Harriet dreamed of traveling north. There, she would be free and would not have to worry about having her marriage split up by the slave trade. She said she would go by herself. He told her that if she ran off, he would tell her master.

Harriet Tubman. You gotta admit, she was a bad ass. She could've just escaped and stay safely in the north. But no, this chick right here went back and guided others to freedom. They should make a movie about this woman and not some cheapo BET crap, but a real movie. Someone make it happen.
