The Norway Spruce Planted in Honor of Harriet Tubman

In Auburn I was introduced to Judith Bryant, a descendant of Harriet Tubman. As I was very moved by the opportunity to meet Judith, she felt the same about meeting me, and I was delighted she agreed to spend a morning with me at the Schweinfurth Art Center where she guided me around to some of her favorite pieces currently on exhibit.

In the this video fragment, Judith talks about the Norway Spruce that stands behind Harriet Tubman’s grave and how it came to be planted there.
