Today the Utah Attorney General’s Office honors the life and work of anti-slavery activist, Harriet Tubman. Born into slavery herself, Tubman later became an armed scout and spy for the United States Army during the American Civil War before leading multiple missions on the Underground Railroad to rescue enslaved families and friends. As an abolitionist and humanitarian, Harriet Tubman is the personification of courage and determination to many of us who fight to eradicate current forms of modern-day slavery.
We invite you to rediscover Harriet Tubman’s dedicated pursuit of American ideals which continue to serve and inspire all who cherish freedom. We highly recommend the exhibit at the National Museum of African American History and Culture and the Philips Gallery.
