New Photo of Young Harriet Tubman to Hit Auction Block


harriet-tubman-549x315A 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.
