"This book is fascinating . . . hyper accessible . . . Harriett Tubman is one of those people [that I thought] like I know her, I'm a black person, I know Harriet Tubman, and it turns out, I did not know her. And I'm so so so glad that I read this because I think that, you know that feeling is so familiar; I know that name, it exists for me on multiple levels of understanding, having someone really interpret the primary sources and give you a new understanding of actually what this person's life means and what it means in the context of today was such a powerful read for me...It is a page-turner and there's so much life into that it's so different from your typical stereotypical history book."--Aminatou Sow, Call Your Girlfriend
