Once again Dr. Bell is a genius at comparing and contrasting 2 immortals of the slave era! they were both heroes in the abolitionist movement. - and now I WILL read "Uncle Toms Cabin" !

We've all heard about Harriet Tubman's heroic efforts in the context of the Underground Railroad, but today I learned about her leadership during the Civil War. She led units of men on missions of espionage and battle and freed over 800 enslaved people in the process. Wow. Just another great example of the stuff they didn't put in our history books when we were growing up. I can't wait to see her face on the $20 bill. I can't think of more worthy figure. I also enjoyed all that we learned about Harriet Beecher Stowe and the impact that "Uncle Tom's Cabin" had, or didn't... on the war. As always with Dr. Bell the talk was well prepared, interactive and entertaining. Edjutainment at it's finest.
"The Two Harriets: Tubman and Beecher Stowe," is a fascinating seminar about two women who fought against the institution of slavery in very different ways. As is true of all of Dr. Bell's seminars, this one was filled with interesting facts and stories all placed within the historical context. I highly recommend it!
Excellent presentation by the awesome Dr. Richard Bell. Anything Dr. Bell teaches is amazing!!!
