“Harriet Tubman was an escaped slave who became a “conductor” on the Underground Railroad, leading slaves to freedom before the Civil War, all while carrying a bounty on her head. But she was also a nurse, a Union spy and a women’s suffrage supporter. Tubman is one of the most recognized icons in American history and her legacy has inspired countless people from every race and background.” https://www.history.com/topics/black-history/harriet-tubman
Sanctuary Cinema is screened on the second Friday of each month. Upcoming in April: “Soufra” follows the unlikely and wildly inspirational story of intrepid social entrepreneur, Mariam Shaar – a generational refugee who has spent her entire life in a refugee camp just south of Beirut, Lebanon. https://www.soufrafilm.com/about_the_film Soufra compels us to believe in the power of women, the magic of food, and how a group of women focused on change and bettering their families, will eventually wear down walls. https://www.facebook.com/pg/soufrafilm/reviews/?ref=page_internal
