Harriet Tubman: Visions of Freedom is a co-production of Firelight Films and Maryland Public Television. Two original documentaries shed light on the life of Harriet Tubman as a leader during her struggle to end slavery.
HARRIET TUBMAN: VISIONS OF FREEDOM and BECOMING FREDERICK DOUGLASS are companion documentary films that accurately depict how enslaved African Americans proactively pursued emancipation, for themselves and others. Demonstrating that no race, gender or social class has a lock on activism, Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass masterfully facilitated nationwide societal change. In fact, Tubman and Douglass were fighting the same war, just on different battlefields. Their efforts were undergirded by powerful personality traits the two abolitionists possessed in abundance – Courage and Strength – and ultimately, have created an enduring Legacy for generations of modern students to explore and study.
The event will be held on Saturday, March 11 at 12:30 p.m. at the Eureka Library. We hope to see you there!
