Harriet Tubman: Great Women Series

On this edition of From The Vault we present a radio special on Harriet Tubman’s life and fight to help slaves escape to the North from a radio series called Great Women produced at KPFA in Berkeley by Darcell King in 1980.

Harriet Tubman might be the first African American woman to have her image printed on U.S. money. A group called Women on 20’s is campaigning to have her image replace the image of President Andrew Jackson on the 20 dollar bill. The campaign has gotten the attention of the White House.
