The Racial Justice Ministry has planned a visit to Harriet Tubman’s birthplace on the Eastern Shore Saturday, June 17, (rain date, June 24). We will leave in carpools at 9:30 a.m. from the Govans parking lot and travel to Church Creek, MD. and begin at the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park. We will enjoy our lunches (brought from home) in a park pavilion and tour the museum. From there we
will visit Brodess Farm where Harriet was born into slavery and spent her earliest years.
Then, we will then make our way to Cambridge, Maryland where we will see the Harriet Tubman mural and visit the Harriet Tubman Museum and Educational Center. After a stop for afternoon tea/coffee we will travel north to return home.
Harriet Tubman was a deeply religious woman who responded to a powerful
divine call with powerful courage, commitment, and action. She served her God,
her people, and her country tirelessly throughout her entire life. We have much
to learn about her and from her.
Our visit will be a time to learn more and honor her on the land she walked –
where she toiled, suffered, loved, prayed, and rejoiced. Let us know if you wish
to join us: email Minister Lea Gilmore, email@example.com or call the church
