Erica Armstrong Dunbar - She Came to Slay: The Life and Times of Harriet Tubman — in conversation with Dolen Perkins-Valdez — at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Saturday, February 15, 2020 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Nearly synonymous with the Underground Railroad, Harriet Tubman (c. 1820-1913) helped bring hundreds of slaves to freedom. She also spied for the Union Army and led an armed expedition during the Civil War, then worked for women’s suffrage and advocated for the elderly. In this vivid and fresh biography, Dunbar, Charles and Mary Beard Professor of History at Rutgers and author of the Frederick Douglass Book Award-winner Never Caught, celebrates the life and achievements of one of the nation’s extraordinary women through a combination of scholarship and dynamic graphics ranging from sidebars and illuminating timelines to illustrations and photos—many of them new. Dunbar will be in conversation with Dolen Perkins-Valdez, author of Wench.
