admire, is a timely reminder that to God every human is
--William David Spencer, co-editor of Christian Egalitarian Leadership
"Harriet Tubman was a powerful, bold, Black woman who risked her life at a time when it was believed by some that Black people didn't have souls. We have come far since then but still not far enough."
--Jozy Pollock, author of Backstage Pass to Heaven

--Aida Besancon Spencer, co-editor of Christian Egalitarian Leadership
"An Artistic Tribute to Harriet Tubman puts history in divine perspective as we see a woman guided by her God emboldened to change the course of history. The abolitionist movement is seen through God's plan and Harriet a chosen vessel divinely sent to destroy the evils of slavery by the power of the Holy Spirit. As God directed Harriet, so too, in this hour, God is leading his children to establish righteousness and truth in the land!"
--Gemma Wenger, television and radio host
"What gave Harriet Tubman courage to go back, multiple times, to liberate enslaved Black people after having escaped her bondage? What compelled her to risk her freedom and life to rescue others from slavery, time and time again? Faith in God! This work captures in artistry our 'Black Moses, ' who inspired by faith in God and Christ overcame fear to set her people free. An Artistic Tribute to Harriet Tubman reminds us that faith inspires the extraordinary in ordinary people. An inspiring must-read!"
