Quilt: Reflection on Freedom

Quilt, Harriet Tubman Museum & Education Center, Cambridge, MD

After arriving in Wilmington, Delaware on February 8, 2020 I recall all I could think about was reaching the Pennsylvania line in Kennett Township. With 12 miles to go, I was already thinking about the moment I reach the land of freedom. Could it have been very different for Harriet Tubman or the hundreds of other Freedom Seekers nearing Pennsylvania’s border?
