Event: Wednesday, March 10 from 2:30pm – 3:15pm
This Women’s History Month, we honor African-American women: the trailblazers, the champions, and our everyday heroines.
March is also our time to celebrate Maryland’s freedom fighter, Harriet Tubman. Harriet Tubman Day is celebrated annually on March 10th to honor Harriet Tubman’s valiant efforts in the fight for freedom. Join them for a virtual event with Maryland research archivist, Maya Davis, as they explore her life and legacy.
