Social Media Guide for Harriet Tubman and International Underground Railroad Month

September 17 marks the 170th anniversary of Harriet Tubman’s self-liberation from slavery and coincides with the upcoming release of Harriet, the first major motion picture to celebrate her remarkable life. Governor Hogan also proclaimed September as International Underground Railroad Month, and as the most powerful Underground Railroad storytelling destination in the world, Maryland is raising awareness of this important part of American history. OTD has released a new Network to Freedom video in support of this mission, and is coordinating social media coverage from across the state.
