speaking of the underground railroad

I was a bit obsessed with it for a brief period of my childhood.

I think this photograph is stunning.

A face of a woman who knows. Full-length portrait of Araminta “Minty” Ross (better known as Harriet Tubman), seated in chair, facing front, probably at her home in Auburn, NY1911. This picture fascinates me as picture itself, add to that this woman’s remarkable life and you can’t help but stare.source: Wiki

One thought on “speaking of the underground railroad

  1. Wow! I did have a slight obsession with the Underground Railroad– as a child. I still can’t figure out specifically what was so fascinating about it. Yet, I can go on & on about it and anything else having to do with slavery.

    Strength, wisdom, courage, compassion. Love…It’s all in her face.
