Historic Sotterley is proud to host the fourth event in its 2020 Sotterley Speaker Series on Wednesday, August 26th.  Angela Crenshaw, Maryland Park Ranger at the Harriet Tubman Museum, will present The Life and Legacy of Harriet Tubman. This is a free virtual event.

Harriet Tubman is the most famous conductor of the Underground Railroad, and while many of us know she spent her early years in Dorchester County on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, there is much more to her life.  Discover the importance and influence that faith, family, community, and the landscape had on one of the most formidable women in American history.

Angela Crenshaw has been the Assistant Manager of Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park in beautiful and historic Church Creek Maryland since 2017. Ranger Crenshaw received her Master’s Degree in Energy and Environmental Policy from the University of Delaware.  Working at Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park allows Ranger Crenshaw to share both her knowledge of the environment and the legacy of Harriet Tubman, a powerful historic shero and a motivating force for all women. Ranger Crenshaw’s current focus is helping guests build a personal connection to Tubman through guided tours and ranger-led presentations.  

For the 13th season, this series is made possible by the generous sponsorship of The Boeing Company!

This event is free, but advance reservation is required for on-line participation.  Links to join the webinar platform along with instructions for registration can be found on Historic Sotterley’s website: www.sotterley.org.
