When I was a doctoral student at Bowie State University in Maryland, I was able to  learn more about the history of that state. One day during my time there, I traveled to Dorchester County to visit the museum dedicated to Harriet Tubman, located just a few miles from where she grew up. Born as Araminta Ross in March 1822 she endured the evil of slavery. However, this woman of great faith knew that slavery was not God’s plan for her.
