    Before She was Harriet

    We know her today as Harriet Tubman, but in her lifetime she was called by many names. As General Tubman she was a Union spy. As Moses she led hundreds to freedom on the Underground Railroad. As Minty she was a slave whose spirit could not be broken.

    An evocative poem and iconographic animation come together to honor a woman of humble origins whose courage and compassion make her larger than life.
