Her nickname was “Moses.”
Harriet Tubman, who inspired enslaved black Americans to travel to freedom on the Underground Railroad, just as the biblical prophet Moses led Hebrews from bondage, will inspire Flint women Saturday, March 10.
As participants in the “Harriet Tubman Day Nationwide Walk,” Flint residents will join black women nationwide in a two-mile walk devoted to health and restoring neighborhoods. The walk begins at noon Saturday on the lawn of Genesee County’s 7th Circuit Court building at the “Resistance to Slavery” historical marker, which identifies a point on the Underground Railroad.
During the 1800s the Underground Railroad was represented by a path of sites from southern territory to northern areas where slavery was illegal.
Hosted by GirlTrek, registration begins at Mott-Warsh Gallery at South Saginaw and Court. Refreshments will be served to participants at Mott-Warsh Gallery, following the walk.
