Black History Month: Quote of the Day

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars and change the world.”

“I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger.”

Harriet Tubman was an American abolitionist who was born into slavery around 1820 in Dorchester County, Maryland. After escaping in 1849 and heading to Philadelphia, she made it her life’s mission to help others do the same by using the Underground Railroad. By doing this, she put herself at a constant risk for capture and severe punishment, since she was not free and had a bounty to her name. Tubman made a difference in multiple other aspects of the country besides slavery, as she was a nurse, Union spy, and women’s suffrage supporter. Her legacy continues to be recognized today and will continue for years to come
