Harriet Tubman Day
March 03, 2021 The Harriet Tubman Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
We hope you will join us for our celebration of Harriet Tubman Day on March 10th
Wednesday, March 10, 2021 1:00 pm-3:00 pm
The Harriet Tubman Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies will host their first annual celebration of Harriet Tubman Day—to mark the department’s name change—on Wednesday, March 10, from 1-3 p.m. Speakers include Ernestine (Tina) Wyatt, a descendant of Harriet Tubman and a UMD alum, as well as faculty and students who have been inspired to draw on Harriet Tubman’s legacy in their work.
In summer 2020, the Department of Women Studies was renamed The Harriet Tubman Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, culminating a two-year effort by faculty, staff and administrators. This event celebrates the new name and Harriet Tubman’s remarkable legacy.
