Free with Museum Admission
All ages

In conjunction with our exhibition Betye Saar: Keepin’ It Cleanmeet 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.

Celebrate Women’s History Month by learning 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.
