“The most important thing was that I had a purpose-to get my kin out of bondage by any means.” • Harriet Tubman #UndergroundWGN
I sat this evening watching and listening, meditating and feeling. I had to hold the shouting for later as I sat in the clearing listening to Harriet Tubman.
This was not the first time that I listened to Harriet Tubman. I have heard her speak to my soul for decades through pages and on stages as I told her story and how it linked to my people in the Gullah/Geechee Nation. This was a story never written in the pages that I started reading about her from the first library book that I every checked out at 4 years old. I read every book about her that I could find for years after that. Once I started writing myself, I researched her life and I knew that this part of her story which kept coming into my spirit had to be told. So, I spoke her story. Harriet and I began to speak together.
