Bandana - A Place For You (Harriet Tubman II)

  • Designed in Washington, D.C.
  • 100% cotton
  • 23 inches square
  • Featuring the last words of Harriet Tubman, we are thrilled to present this limited edition cotton bandana. Inspired by the celebrated abolitionist, conductor on the Underground Railroad, Civil War battalion commander, spy, wife and hardworking woman, this piece is a special tribute. With a shadowy design depicting a woman moving silently through a dark forest at night, it symbolizes advancing from bondage to freedom.

  • In the early 1830s, the term Underground Railroad came into use as the system that led enslaved African Americans to freedom. Harriet Tubman was one of the most well known conductors on the railroad who helped hundreds of others to escape slavery once she herself had escaped. As an abolitionist, suffragist, Civil War nurse, commander, and freedom agent, Tubman’s contribution to the causes of universal freedom and equality rank her among the nation’s most significant agents of change.

    After the war Tubman received a widow’s pension, later petitioning Congress for additional benefits for her own service to the U.S. Army. Eventually her claim was successful and she received an increase to her pension to twenty five dollars per month.

    Among its vast holdings, The National Archives keeps materials relating to the Underground Railroad, the pension claim and supporting documents that Harriet Tubman submitted to Congress, the bill granting the increase of her pension, along with a wealth of resources documenting the African American experience, and women’s history.

Gorgeous Bandanna

This bandanna is very colorful and lightweight. Very well made, a bit on the sheer side. I love the message and the graphic and how it honors the indomitable Harriet Tubman!

We love to hear this! Thank you for your purchase, and for your review.
