Living History: Meet Harriet Tubman
Saturday, January 26, and Sunday, January 27, 12 pm – 4 pm

Free with Museum Admission
All ages

In celebration of the opening of Betye Saar: Keepin’ It Clean and in conjunction with our exhibition Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crowmeet Living Historians who portray Harriet Tubman and other self-liberated people of African descent who, like those depicted by the Betye Saar, strongly defied racial oppression in the 19th century.

Learn more about Tubman’s accomplishments before, during, and after the American Civil War and Reconstruction, ask questions about how she and her associates used the Underground Railroad to free themselves, and discover the tales, tools, and techniques of how Tubman and many emancipated people evaded capture and found their way north.
