What if you had lived during the time of slavery in America? Can you imagine what life would have been like? If you had been a slave, would you have wanted to be free? If you were not a slave, would you have taken action to help free slaves and end slavery? Just how would you have felt? In this UReadULead selection, Miss Livy does her Black History Month project on Harriet Tubman, a black woman who escaped from slavery and helped other slaves to also gain their freedom. As you read the story, try to imagine what it would have been like for Harriet Tubman to navigate through the forest, cross through swamps, and use the "Underground Railroad" to help slaves gain their freedom. At the end of this historical based story, you decide if Miss Livy did a great job in her presentation to the crowd of people at C. R. Patterson Elementary School. And, in case you did not know, C. R. Patterson is a great, black inventor. Do some research and find out what he invented and you will be amazed.
