Harriet Tubman Escapes

video
Part 2 in the Bentley Boyd comic series on Harriet Tubman. Here she crosses the river from Maryland to freedom in Pennsylvania The online archives are here
The book collections are well worth the price. I've gotten several. Here's the link to amazon.
It's tough coming up with soundtracks. Here I used Old Man river song by Paul Robeson

There's an old man called the Mississippi
That's the old man that I'd like to be
What does he care if the world has troubles
What does he care if the land ain't free
Ol' man river,
Dat ol' man river
He mus'know sumpin'
But don't say nuthin',
He jes'keeps rollin'
He keeps on rollin' along.
He don' plant taters/tators,
He don't plant cotton,
An' dem dat plants'em
is soon forgotten,
But ol'man river,
He jes keeps rollin'along.
You an'me, we sweat an' strain,
Body all achin' an' racket wid pain,
Tote dat barge!
Lif' dat bale!
Git a little drunk
An' you land in jail.
Ah gits weary
An' sick of tryin'
Ah'm tired of livin'
An' skeered of dyin',
But ol' man river,
He jes'keeps rolling' along.
