On Tuesday (March 7), the Harriet Tubman Home launched an online campaign, aimed at raising $25,000 (£20,498) to help buy a newly discovered photo of Tubman, which goes up for sale later this month.
The photo, believed to have been taken when Tubman was in her ’40s, is expected to fetch $25,000-$30,000 (£20,498-£24,598).
“By helping us raise the money needed to bid on this photo and bring Harriet home, know that we are collectively aligning ourselves with the work of Tubman herself,” reads a statement on the crowd funding site Women You Should Fund. “When we bring Harriet home through your generosity we are all answering the call of freedom.”
