The annual Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Conference is set for May 31-June 1, 2019 in Cambridge, Maryland — just a few miles from the lands where Harriet Tubman lived and toiled, as well as the site of the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center.

The two-day symposium focuses on the research about Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad. This year’s theme is “It Ran on Faith.” The conference invites historians, students, educators, researchers, genealogists, artists and others to share and compare, interpret and celebrate this story based on family, freedom, community and faith.

The conference is seeking proposals by Feb. 19, 2019. “We are seeking proposals related to the realities and complexities of slavery, escapes and those who made escapes possible with an undercurrent of faith.” Learn more about the call for proposals.

More details about the conference will be added as they are released by event organizers.
