Play • 36 min

Hold the presses doggonit. Ain’t no way. Ain’t no waaaay! It’s Harriet Tubman Day!  Congress designated today, March 10th which is the day our foremother died in 1915, as a commemorative holiday. (Should we start a petition to make it a federal holiday? Like Veterans’ Day? honor the sacrifices and labor of Black women?  I ain’t playing. Think about it. Let's start by supporting this petition to accelerate the printing of Harriet Tubman’s portrait on the $20 bill!). Tune in today for a lively conversation and a special edition of Black History Bootcamp. We will break down 10 little-known facts about Harriet Tubman and will issue a very special call to action on how you can become the Harriet of your neighborhood this summer with GirlTrek. I promise you won’t want to miss this.
