Imagine watching the new “Harriet” movie on Maryland’s Eastern Shore — the place Harriet lived the first 25+ years of her life in slavery. Where she forged strong bonds with family. Where she toiled and learned the crucial outdoor skills that helped her escape. Where she started her many missions to freedom.
Watch the movie on opening weekend and then walk in her footsteps by taking the road trip known as the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway, which includes more than 30 sites related to Harriet Tubman and/or the Underground Railroad. The sites include the grassroots-formed Harriet Tubman Museum & Educational Center (home of the Harriet Tubman Mural); the Bucktown General Store where Harriet had her first act of defiance as a young girl; Choptank Landing, where Harriet led her most daring rescues; and the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park and Visitor Center.
Here along the Tubman Byway, the film opens at Cambridge Premier Cinemas Nov. 1 with a special advance showing on Oct. 31. Choose from nine showtimes daily on Nov. 1 and 2 alone.
