Discover the amazing stories of two brave, black women who enriched the lives of other blacks and whites.  Harriet Tubman, 1850’s called a “Modern Day Moses” escaped from “slavery”.  She used the “underground Railroad” to save 300+ other slaves by going North with them.  In the civil War, Harriet was a nurse, a scout and a spy.  Thea Bowman was born African-American in Mississippi (1937).  She became a Catholic Franciscan Sister.  The only “black” in an all-white religious order.  As a professor she tried to show what it was like to be a Black Catholic in the US.
