SORT BY Relevancy
Tubman's organizing ability was key to her success -- she had to work with supporters on the clandestine Underground Railroad, as well as get messages to the slaves, since she met them away from their plantations to avoid detection. They usually left on a Saturday evening, as the Sabbath might delay anyone noticing their absence for another day, and if anyone did note their flight, the Sabbath would certainly delay anyone from organizing an effective pursuit or publishing a reward.
Tubman was only about five feet tall, but she was smart and she was strong -- and she carried a long rifle. She used the rifle not only to intimidate pro-slavery people they might meet, but also to keep any of the slaves from backing out. She threatened any who seemed like they were about to leave, telling them that "dead Negroes tell no tales." A slave who returned from one of these trips could betray too many secrets: who had helped, what paths the flight had taken, how messages were passed..
Quakers Released Slaves
Not only did many Quakers release their slaves, but they saw to it that they could take care of themselves, teaching them to read and write and, in many cases, seeing that they were escorted to states or territories where they could live in freedom.
Quaker John Woolman was involved with the abolitionist movement from an early date. He traveled the countryside, preaching against slavery. Woolman, born in 1720, became convinced that slavery was wrong when, at the age 20, he was asked by his employer to write a bill of sale for a slave girl. He did write it, but told his boss that he “believed slave-keeping to be a practice inconsistent with the Christian religion.” Shortly after this incident, Woodman left his job to travel and was instrumental in spreading the abolitionist message.
This installment of The Forbidden Fruit will remember the contributions of Harriet Tubman and her underground railroad.

It's Black History Month and Harriet Tubman is a Cartoon. I believe the cartoon is wonderful artwork. It's just an artist's rendering of a great moment is history and of a person of fact. The music is by Papa's Results, a music group that was on Kenneth Howard Smith's upstart recording label back in 1976 called MasterTrack Records. The group went on to be signed by Warner Elecktra Atlantic (WEA Records).
In this episode we discuss the following:
Russell Simmons' "beef" with CNN's Don Lemon. As well as the backlash to the releaseof Simmons' Harriet Tubman "Sex Tape". In particular, we'll explore the question of whether Simmons went too far i his attempt at humor.
Tonight on a historically offensive edition of the Never Daunted Radio Network, what if beloved abolitionist activist Harriet Tubman, while enslaved, turns the tables on her owner one night by graciously accepting his normally unwanted sexual advances in an effort to blackmail him and earn her freedom. What could go wrong, right? Well, just ask hip-hop icon Russell Simmons, whose new All Def Digital YouTube channel, depicts Tubman having doggystyle sex with her slaver, naturally pissing off just about everyone.Next, a Missouri state representative is suing the federal government for a personal family exemption from the Obamacare birth control mandate on grounds that it violates his religious liberty. Essentially, this guy is suing to keep his wife and daughters from having the option to access free birth control. What a dad!Later, we carry on our #DontBeDumb crusade with news that a Utah beauty pageant winner charged last week with tossing homemade "bottle bombs" from a vehicle is relinquishing her crown...before pageant officials strip her of it. Doesn't get more explosive than that.Finally, a Chinese man was staying at a Bed & Breakfast, but had a night so wild that he drunkenly mistook a shipping container for the B&B and fell asleep inside it, waking up to find that the crate had been loaded aboard a cargo ship set for a two-week trip to Los Angeles. Welcome to America, pal.All this and more, tonight on the Never Daunted Radio Network!
