Harriet’s Return: Based Upon the Legendary Life of Harriet Tubman

Harriet’s Return tells the story of Harriet Tubman’s extraordinary life: abolitionist, Black feminist and entrepreneur who freed 300 people enslaved in the South through the Underground Railroad. Born into slavery in 1822 Maryland, Tubman died an entrepreneur and philanthropist in 1913 in Auburn New York. She helped pioneer the women’s suffragette movement as a popular orator, married two husbands, and raised an adopted daughter. By the early 1900s, she opened the Harriet Tubman Home for Aged and Infirm Negroes.
