“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” — Harriet Tubman
Born 100 years apart, two women in Dorchester County shared a vision to change the world.
Harriet Tubman — abolitionist, activist and conductor on the Underground Railroad — and Gloria Richardson — Civil Rights freedom fighter and leader of the Cambridge Movement – demonstrated unbelievable strength and passion to advance basic freedoms for African Americans in the United States.
During Black and Women’s History months and throughout the year, visitors to Cambridge and Dorchester County can walk in the footsteps of Tubman and Richardson to explore the sites and landscapes of HerStory.
