Kate Clifford Larson gives inspirational talk on Harriet Tubman at M’Clintock House

Professor Kate Clifford Larson of Simmons College in Boston highlighted the Memorial Day weekend program at Women’s Rights National Historical Park with an inspirational talk on Underground Railroad hero Harriet Tubman on May 24, 2008 at M’Clintock House in Waterloo, NY. Author of the 2004 definitive biography, “Bound for the Promised Land: Harriet Tubman, Portrait of an American Hero,” Larson pointed out that Tubman has not received the recognition she deserves as a true American patriot and that while there are 60 children’s books about the former slave, Larson’s is only the third full Tubman biography and the first since 1943.
