Brown Bag Program presented by Kathryn Harris

Undoubtedly THE most famous Conductor on the Underground Railroad, Harriet Tubman risked her life more than a dozen times to lead scores of slaves to freedom. Despite rewards for her capture, she was never caught! Come and meet this remarkable woman from American History as she is brought to life in this first person presentation by Kathryn Harris.

Bring your lunch and join us for a different speaker and topic on the third Wednesday of each month. Brown Bag Lectures are held at the ISM Research & Collections Center at 1011 E. Ash St. in Springfield.* For additional information, please contact events@illinoisstatemuseum.org or (217) 558-6696.
