For CW student Antwon Ethridge, Harriet Tubman is a daily inspiration to change the world around him. When we asked him the reason that he considers Harriet Tubman a Shero, he said, “She is my Shero because of her perseverance to help slaves get to freedom. I always try to remember to perform selfless acts like volunteering or just helping someone across the street.”
Harriet Tubman was an American abolitionist and political activist. Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently made some 13 missions to rescue approximately 70 enslaved people, including family and friends, using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad.
