A newly discovered photo of abolitionist Harriet Tubman when she was a much younger woman will be sold at auction in New York City next month.
The photo was found in an album owned by another abolitionist, according to the curator of an auction house.
Tubman’s photo will be included alongside photos of other well-known abolitionists from that era.
The album is expected to fetch an estimated $20,000 to $30,000.
Tubman was a runaway slave who fled north in 1849. She returned to help lead 300 slaves to freedom as conductor of the underground railroad.
February is Black History Month, also known as African American History Month in America and Tubman is my favorite pioneer of all time.

“They” have pictures from back then of many of the atrocities inflicted upon Black people. However, they refuse to publish them publicly because they don’t want Black people to hate whites.
More of treating Black people as if we’re children. If anything, releasing these actual pictures would probably jar Black people into action and increased levels of self respect. Of course we know that this is not desired either..
This picture should go for millions!!!! One day it will…..may not be in our life time but hey
Cant wait until they release those new 20s with Harriett on em… Imma slap them on the counter with this weird look in my eye every time I go to buy something.
The Bible is our black history. The prophets were black, Israel is black, the Messiah is black and the Most High is black.
