Harriet Tubman: Journey to Freedom Documentary
On October 12, the Newburgh Free Library welcomed a new temporary resident. A beautiful, 9 foot tall, 2400 pound bronze statue called Journey to Freedom will grace the plaza in front of the Library until December. Newburgh Free Library is hosting “Journey to Freedom,” a year-long series of arts, cultural and educational programs, inspired by the courage, vision and strength of the American abolitionist and political activist, Harriet Tubman.
Take a few minutes to learn more about this project, how this project came to fruition, and the impact this project has had on our community.
This sculpture of Harriet Tubman by award-winning artist Wesley Wofford will be on display in front of the Newburgh Free Library from October 12 to December 12, 2020. For more information, please visit our website at www.newburghlibrary.org.
