Harriet Tubman


COBBLESTONE Magazine February 2022. Harriet Tubman refused to accept life as an enslaved person—for herself or for anyone else that she could help.

You may have heard of Harriet Tubman, but chances are this edition of COBBLESTONE Magazine is going to teach you something new as it takes a deep dive into the life, history, and impact of “American Moses.”


Starting off by setting the context for the times with background on the rise of slavery, COBBLESTONE Magazine goes in-depth into the life and times of early American colonialism—particularly focused on enslaved men, women and children. By shining a spotlight on Harriet Tubman, from her early childhood through to the secret journeys, creation of the Underground Railroad, and activism even as older individual, you get eye-opening insights into what society and politics were like at the time. Additionally, you’ll meet other heroes—some you may not have heard of, learn the signals and codes that helped set and keep hundreds of slaves on the path to freedom, and hear about Harriet’s battle to become the new face of our twenty-dollar bill.
