Harriet, The Moses of Her People

By Sarah H. Bradford
Level 11

Harriet, The Moses of Her People is an inspiring true story of Harriet Tubman and her tremendous impact for good during a time of much oppression and hardship. As an enslaved woman, Harriet experienced countless adversities and cruelty. “Why should such things be?” she often pondered. Even as a child, she knew slavery was wrong and must end. As a young woman, Harriet slipped away from her slave master one night. Alone, she courageously made her journey to the North, where freedom awaited her. Harriet eventually gained her freedom and, despite great peril and hardship, returned many times to the South to free her family members and hundreds of others. A woman of deep faith, courage, and love, Harriet prayed with complete trust that the Lord would hear and answer her prayers. She was fearless, for she knew God was at the helm and would guide her steps. Harriet’s life is an example of dedicated service to God and to her neighbors. Truly she, like Moses, lived the commandments of God and, with His help, delivered her people.
