The selfless life of Harriet Tubman by Abbie Cessna
Abbie Cessna does more around the studio than just sit behind a computer and juggle numbers all day. We asked her to narrate this History Matters episode on Harriet Tubman.
Harriet Tubman was one of the most influential women in history. Her actions led to drastic changes in millions of African American lives. She was an abolitionist, a humanitarian, and a Union spy during the Civil War. Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently aided in the escape of over seventy slaves using the backbone of what came to be known as the Underground Railroad.
