The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Conference on June 3-4 is a two-day symposium featuring more than 20 workshops, speakers, fellowship, and a sneak preview of the new Harriet Tubman Visitor Center. The symposium brings together professionals and individual researchers who have studied Harriet Tubman and others who risked their lives for freedom, and places them into a larger context of national importance. The conference happens in Cambridge, Maryland, the area where Harriet Tubman was born and lived for more than 25 years. While you’re here, explore the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway.

Harriet Tubman to be featured on new $20 bill
Harriet Tubman’s legacy continues to grow with the news that the U.S. Treasury will redesign the $20 bill to feature Tubman’s face on the front. She becomes the first woman in more than 100 years and the first African-American woman to be featured on U.S. currency. We think this shows the power of her story of courage and selflessness, and how it speaks to people of all ages and circumstances all over the country and the world.
