      Harriet Tubman Perhaps one of the most amazing and inspirational figures to spring up, not only in African American culture, but in world terms, is that of Harriet Tubman. She dedicated herself to the liberation and freedom of her people from the tyranny that was slavery, putting her own life on the line in order to do it. Harriet Tubman first met John Tubman in the early s on a plantation in Dorchester County, Maryland, back when she still went by Amarinta “Minty” Ross. John Tubman had been born free and worked various temporary jobs. Not much is known about their courtship but by all accounts the pair were very different from each : Natasha Ishak.
