Details:In honor of Black History Month, Johnson County Historical Society is hosting a program on Harriet Tubman, as portrayed by Coralville resident, Portia Byrd.

Harriet Tubman was an African-American abolitionist, humanitarian, and Union spy during the American Civil War. Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently made about thirteen missions to rescue approximately seventy enslaved family and friends, using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. She later helped John Brown recruit men for his raid on Harpers Ferry, and in the post-war era struggled for women's suffrage. (American History USA)

Portia Byrd is a professional storyteller who has won many awards for her performances. She has fought against segregation and prejudice her whole life, even attended the March on Washington in August 1963.
