Harriet Ross Tubman

You will be free or die... January 7, 2017

Harriet Tubman (born Araminta Ross; c. 1822[1] – March 10, 1913) was an American abolitionist, humanitarian, and an armed scout and spy for the United States Army during the American Civil War. Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently made some thirteen missions to rescue approximately seventy enslaved families and friends,[2] using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. She later helped abolitionist John Brown recruit men for his raid on Harpers Ferry, and in the post-war era was an active participant in the struggle for women's suffrage.

It might sound like an opinion of an ignorant guy but most of us think about Da Vinci’s paintings as masterpieces just because this is what we were told in our schools. We have no level of expert knowledge to find it by ourselves. How can I be so sure? What about you? So we all acknowlege this general point of view: Masterpiece. What does that even mean? What are the criteria, and why no others?
