The Landscapes of Harriet Tubman's Early Years

"I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger."

Few women have national park sites dedicated to them. Harriet Tubman has two. Explore the landscapes of her early life at the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park in Church Creek, Maryland. Discover her remarkable second act at Harriet Tubman National Historical Park.

From escaping a life of slavery at 27 to guiding others to new lives of freedom, Harriet Tubman’s epic story is an enduring legacy. Join MC Lyte, one of hip-hop’s pioneers and champion of our national parks, as she explores the national parks that commemorate Harriet Tubman’s life.

The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park in Church Creek, Maryland, is a 480-acre park that preserves the same natural landscapes that Tubman used to navigate herself and others to freedom. Learn how “Moses of her people” went into the heart of danger time and time again, to fight for freedom and equality.

Tubman’s story is a reminder that civil rights can be fragile, but a single person who takes personal action to fight for those rights can make a difference for humanity.

This inspiring video, produced by the National Park Service and National Park Foundation, invites you to discover more about Harriet Tubman and #FindYourPark / #EncuentraTuParque to stand where Harriet stood.
