FC: On My Way to Freedom By: Jaida Robinson
1: Stressing slaves picking cotton and slaves that aren't useful an more are sent to the meadows in far away villages to die. | Any time that slaves would try to run away they got caught.
2: THis is most of my family. We stay together through anything except for the fact that Harriet Tubman took them with her to Freedom.
3: These were the people that was going to help everybody get away as soon as they found out if freedom was actually real or not. Many slave owners told us that it wasn't neva a place called freedom, they said that all it was, were just slave one field after another. Of course we didn't believe him, Harriet Tubman had gotten away.
4: This is Harriet Tubman. After she got away everybody was runnin. I mean everybody had whip marks on thier backs.
5: Like branches on a tree, our lives may grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one. This is Harriet Tubman. This is the lady that I looked up to until she left me. Her own flesh and blood. I was the woman that she got into an argument with the day before she became a free woman. | This is My Slave Master. Master Livingston
