Meeting Harriet Tubman

During the month of February, the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park and Visitor Center is hosting free, family-friendly programs during the weekends.

On Fridays, park rangers will lead introductions and teach visitors about the hidden symbolism behind the Park and Visitor Center. On Saturdays, families can learn how to play the board game Mancala, and join Ranger Maszkiewicz and Maryland Park Service’s Scales & Tales for a lesson on the natural landscape and native wildlife of Tubman’s time.

Sundays convene with “Story Time with Mama Mary,” which explores the concept of self-liberation through engaging storytelling with Ranger “Mama Mary” Dennard. Enjoy a moment of meditation and recognition of privileges taken for granted. After being a part of Ranger Dennard’s presentation, we hope you will have an awareness of how far society has come and how far we still have to go.

All programs are free. The Visitor Center is open 9 a.m.–5 p.m. and is located at 4068 Golden Hill Road, Church Creek, Md. The park and Visitor Center is also the trailhead for the 125-mile trail through Maryland’s Eastern Shore that includes 36 sites relating to Tubman and the Underground Railroad.
Details on the Visitor Center and its Black History Month programs can be found at dnr.maryland.gov/publiclands/Pages/eastern/Tubman/Visitor-Center.aspx
