Born into the brutal world of slavery, Harriet Tubman escaped to find freedom in the North. She courageously returned south nineteen times to lead more than three hundred slaves to freedom by way of the Underground Railroad. In magnificent painting and striking verse, renowned artist Jacob Lawrence captures the power of Harriet's spirit as she leads her people to liberty in the Promised Land.
