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.

One of the keynote speakers at the Tubman Conference is Tina Wyatt, the great-great-great niece of Harriet Tubman. The other is Karsonya Wise Whitehead of Loyola University.

Some of the conference events take place at the Harriet Tubman Museum & Educational Center, which has gone viral on social media recently for its powerful new mural of Harriet Tubman on the side of the building. Read more about the mural.

Come and experience the landscape, the stories and the faith that the presenters have unearthed. This conference is a wonderful place to meet others who share your passion for history.
