Jailbreak Out of History, the re-biography of Harriet Tubman, by Butch Lee
Published by Kersplebedeb in 2000, 92 pages. Paperback (N3592)
This book is a fascinating biographical study of Harriet Tubman and one which refutes the standard American version of her life. At a time when violence against women of colour is at the center of world politics, uncovering the censored story of one such woman points to answers that have nothing to do with government programs, police, or patriarchal politics......
Harriet Tubman (1822-1913) was an African-American abolitionist, humanitarian, and Union spy during the American Civil War. After escaping from slavery, into which she was born, she made thirteen missions to rescue over seventy slaves using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. She later helped John Brown recruit men for his raid on Harpers Ferry, and in the post-war era struggled for women's suffrage.
