Join us for a presentation by Dr. Mahassen Mgadmi, scholar in African American studies and a U.S. exchange program alumna, who will shed light on the heroic life of Harriet Tubman, who dedicated her life to fighting slavery. Named “the Moses of her people,” for facilitating multiple rescue missions of slaves, she stood out as one of the greatest abolitionists of her time who represented the ideals of American democracy. Later in her life, Harriet became heavily involved with promoting women’s suffrage with figures like Susan B. Anthony. This presentation will give you the chance to discuss:
The abolitionist movement of the 19th Century and the importance of the Underground Railroad
Harriet Tubman’s struggle to promote women’s suffrage
The ongoing effort to add Harriet Tubman’s photo to the $20 bill
The inspiring lyrics of the song “standup” by Cynthia Eriva, which narrates the life of Tubman
