Harriet Tubman and the Railway to Freedom

Since Harriet Tubman is soon to be on the new $20 bill, we thought some young learners might like to know a little more about her. This is one neat way to accomplish that:

Harriet Tubman & the Railway to Freedom (MP3 audio) is a classic old time radio dramatization of the story of Harriet Tubman and her work with the “underground railroad” during slave years. This excellent half hour audio program was originally broadcast on the radio series “Destination Freedom” way back on July 4, 1948.

  1. Thanks for this.  We're studying Lincoln/slavery this week and my second grader really enjoyed listening to this recording.
