Soldier for Freedom is a heart-wrenching yet triumphant story of Harriet Tubman. Filmed on location here on the Eastern Shore and featuring Chestertown resident Pat Martin, the film briefly shares the dramatic, difficult story of Tubman’s life as an enslaved child and adult, her pursuit of freedom on the Underground Railroad, and her determination to end slavery and bring liberty and justice to others. The short film is a deeply moving introduction to the park’s exhibits and programs, highlighting all the things that were most meaningful and important to Tubman – Family, Freedom, Faith, and Community.
A second short film, Fighting for Freedom: Lewis Hayden and the Underground Railroad will also be screened.
We are pleased to welcome Dana Paterra, Park Manager, Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park, Department of Natural Resources and Diane Miller, National Park Service, to Sumner Hall on October 27, 4:30-6:30 PM to facilitate the after-film discussions.
