Go beyond the legend and meet the inspiring woman who repeatedly risked her own life and freedom to liberate others from slavery. Through segments from Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Stanley Nelson’s forthcoming documentary Harriet Tubman: Visions of Freedom, explore the life and legacy of Harriet Tubman.
