Thea Bowman

Discover the amazing stories of two brave African American women who enriched the lives of countless others.  Harriet Tubman (b. 1820), called a “Modern Day Moses”, escaped from slavery and used the Underground Railroad to save more than 300 other slaves by going North with them.  During the Civil War, Harriet was a nurse, a scout and a spy.

Thea Bowman, born in Mississippi in 1937, became a Catholic Franciscan Sister, the only black sister in the all-white religious order at that time.  As a professor, she tried to show what it was like to be a black Catholic in the United States.
