Harriet Tubman
By: Larmeakriss T.
Illinois, Grade 11



I nominate this woman in particular because of all the thing she has done for her people, she helped her fellow slave members and her family to escape slavery because felt that it was not right being held against her and being treated like an animal instead of a human being. She was determined to be free because she know that she had every right to be treated same way that the whites where treated. Harriet Tubman was a strong black leader that strived all of her life to be free, so she found a way she took people and lead them to freedom, no matter what obstacles she had to take whether if she had gotten killed or capture she know that she had made a difference. Harriet got tired of her people and herself suffering of all the things that they had indured, being hit by whips and even killed.
