Over a century since her passing the words of abolitionist, political activist, and suffragist Harriet Tubman comfort and inspire Americans still: “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
Harriet Tubman -- original name Araminta Ross-- (1822-1913) is a hero; a symbol of freedom, perseverance, dedication, and faith. Tubman serves as a reminder to stand up for equal rights and to follow your dreams. As such, this bust is the perfect gift for anyone striving for equality.

Monuments: Commemoration and Controversy (January 28--July 3, 20220 explores monuments and their representations in public spaces as flashpoints of fierce debate over national identity, politics, and race that have raged for centuries. Offering a historical foundation for understanding today’s controversies, the exhibition features fragments of a statue of King George III torn down by American Revolutionaries, a souvenir replica of a bulldozed monument by Harlem Renaissance sculptor Augusta Savage, and a maquette of New York City’s first public monument to a Black woman, Harriet Tubman, among other objects from the Museum’s collection. The exhibition reveals how monument-making and monument-breaking have long shaped American life as public statues have been celebrated, attacked, protested, altered, and removed.
