Famous during her lifetime and memorialized since her death in 1913, Harriet Tubman’s importance has grown dramatically in the past twenty years. Hear about the real Harriet Tubman—the woman, warrior, soldier, activist, and leader—and join in a discussion of why her story resonates so much today.
Historic New England presents a conversation with Dr. Kate Clifford Larson, a bestselling author of critically acclaimed biographies "Bound for the Promised Land: Harriet Tubman: Portrait of an American Hero," and "Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter." Larson has consulted on feature film scripts—most recently Focus Features’ "Harriet" starring Cynthia Erivo—documentaries, museum exhibits, animation and augmented reality productions, public history initiatives, and numerous publications.
