"Before She Was Harriet"
by Lesa Cline-Ransome (Author) and James E. Ransome (Illustrator)
This lush, lyrical biography in verse begins with a glimpse of Harriet Tubman as an old woman, and travels back in time through the many roles she played through her life: spy, liberator, suffragist, and more. Illustrated by James Ransome, whose paintings for The Creation won a Coretta Scott King medal, this is a riveting introduction to an American hero.
Read by Marja Harmon, who is Angelica Schuyler Church in the North American Tour of Hamilton.
