Quote of the Week: Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman has deeply moved me since I was a little girl. I have been at her feet all my life. In these entries, I’d like to share with you aspects of Harriet that many people are not aware of. Here’s one of my favorite quotes, for starters:

“Oh Lord, convert master!” “Oh Lord, change dat man’s heart!” …”Oh Lord, if you ant nebber gwine to change dat man’s heart, kill him, Lord, an’ take him out ob de way.”
~ Araminta Harriet Ross Tubman-Davis (aka Harriet Tubman), from “Scenes in the Life of Harriet Tubman” by Sarah H. Bradford (1869)
