Jailbreak Out of History: The Re-Biography of Harriet Tubman and "The Evil of Female Loaferism"

This book is about Harriet Tubman
"Jailbreak Out of History: The Re-Biography of Harriet Tubman and 'The Evil of Female Loaferism'" is a profound exploration of Harriet Tubman's radical role in shaping 19th-century America. Published on September 30, 2021, this book by Butch Lee redefines the narrative of anticolonial struggles, emphasizing the pivotal contributions of New Afrikan/Black women. It challenges the distorted historical perspectives that trivialize Tubman’s efforts, presenting her instead as a guerrilla leader and military strategist whose tactics surpassed the understanding of her male counterparts. Lee portrays Tubman as a communal figure and Black Feminist deeply embedded in the political storms of her era, her actions driven by a culture of resistance. The book also delves into the post-Civil War era, revealing how New Afrikan women's labor resistance shaped the global class struggle, leading to societal panic and oppressive responses like the Black Codes and Jim Crow. Ideal for middle-school readers, this narrative not only highlights racial, gender, and economic justice but also invites young minds to critically reflect on the complexities of history and the enduring fight for equality.
