During a festive ceremony that included area schoolchildren and songs from the acclaimed American Spiritual Ensemble, Salisbury University on Tuesday celebrated the life of Underground Railroad pioneer Harriet Tubman, the “Moses of her people,” with the unveiling of a larger-than-life bronze sculpture on the lawn of SU’s Teacher Education and Technology Center. According to its creator, Dr. James Hill of the SU Art Department, this is believed to be the first commemorative three-dimensional likeness of Tubman on her native Eastern Shore. “In years to come I believe thousands of visitors will be drawn to the Salisbury University campus to see this remarkable sculpture and to learn about the historic significance of Harriet Tubman in the life of our nation,” said SU President Janet Dudley-Eshbach.
