Harriet Tubman was an African-American woman who daringly escaped slavery and helped hundreds of other slaves escape to freedom. She became the most famous of all "conductors" of the Underground Railroad, which was a system of safe houses that slaves used to travel to freedom in the North. Her inspiring story of courage and determination continued into her later life as she worked for aid and education for freed slaves, as well as for women's right to vote.
