Listen to this story

CHURCH CREEK, Md. — February is Black History Month, and the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park and Visitor Center offers a lineup of free programs every Friday, Saturday and Sunday this month.

Throughout February, the park’s experts and special guests will lead special programs focusing on Tubman and her pivotal role in the struggle against slavery.

A highlight comes this Saturday, February 9. At 3 p.m., Tubman biographer and scholar Dr. Kate Clifford Larson will speak about Tubman’s strong faith and spiritual influences and how they can be interpreted for the 21st century, in a program called “This Far By Faith: Harriet Tubman’s Spiritual Journeys to Freedom.”
