This book is about Harriet Tubman
"Minty: A Story of Young Harriet Tubman" is an evocative and award-winning children's book that delves into the early years of one of America's most iconic figures in the struggle for racial justice. Before she was the renowned Harriet Tubman, orchestrator of the Underground Railroad, she was Minty—a spirited and courageous young girl enslaved in the antebellum South. This narrative masterfully recounts how Minty, known for her fierce determination and sharp mind, learned vital survival and escape skills from her father, setting the stage for her later heroics. Published on December 1, 2000, and adorned with honors including the Coretta Scott King Award and an ALA Notable Book recognition, this story captures the essence of resilience and the fight for freedom. Ideal for elementary school readers, "Minty" not only educates but also inspires, echoing Tubman’s powerful vision of freedom that continues to resonate today. Will young readers see the strength in themselves to change their world, just as Minty did?
