Harriet Tubman's Life in Pictures

Students in Story+ project explore the different sides to an abolitionist, political activist, feminist and warrior

The Story+ Photographic Life of Harriet: Tubman’s Life in Pictures team explored the visual life of Harriet Tubman in diverse illustrations of the abolitionist. Students working on this project organized the visual archive of Tubman’s representation from photographs she took during her lifetime, and included her enduring images in public memory, including statues, memorials, museums, murals and fine art by canonic artists.
