Show Notes

Hold the presses doggonit. Ain’t no way. Ain’t no waaaay! It’s Harriet Tubman Day!  Congress designated today, March 10th which is the day our foremother died in 1915, as a commemorative holiday. (Should we start a petition to make it a federal holiday? Like Veterans’ Day?...to honor the sacrifices and labor of Black women?  I ain’t playing. Think about it. Let's start by supporting this petition to accelerate the printing of Harriet Tubman’s portrait on the $20 bill!). Tune in today for a lively conversation and a special edition of Black History Bootcamp. We will break down 10 little-known facts about Harriet Tubman and will issue a very special call to action on how you can become the Harriet of your neighborhood this summer with GirlTrek. I promise you won’t want to miss this.
