Harriet Tubman. Von Sarah Bradford

Auszug aus Amazon:

Harriet, the Moses of Her People was written by Sarah Bradford. Harriet Tubman is called Moses because she is responsible for helping several hundred slaves get to freedom. After her own escape from slavery she returned to the South 19 times to help others get out. She later became a spy and scout for the Northern armies. She worked as a nurse when needed. Her story begins „On a hot summer’s day, perhaps sixty years ago, a group of merry little darkies were rolling and tumbling in the sand in front of the large house of a Southern planter. Their shining skins gleamed in the sun, as they rolled over each other in their play, and their voices, as they chattered together, or shouted in glee, reached even to the cabins of the negro quarter, where the old people groaned in spirit, as they thought of the future of those unconscious young revelers; and their cry went up, „O, Lord, how long!“ On a hot summer’s day, perhaps sixty years ago, a group of merry little darkies were rolling and tumbling in the sand in front of the large house of a Southern planter.
