塔布曼:地下铁道的车掌

自奴隶身份脱逃后,海丽特塔布曼多次往返于赞成奴隶制度的各州内,帮助其他的奴隶逃亡。她将这些奴隶安全的带到北方各州及加拿大。身为逃亡奴隶是十分危险的一个身份。到处都有重金缉捕逃亡奴隶的公告;图中的公告钜细弥遗的陈述奴隶的外形及特征。每当塔布曼带领一群奴隶奔向自由时,她就面临了极大的风险。因为她本身是个逃亡奴隶,而且她帮助其他奴隶逃亡的举动也违反了赞成奴隶制度的南方法律,所以南方悬赏重金缉捕她。当那些逃亡的奴隶开始害怕并想要回头时,您认为塔布曼会怎么处理?
 

After Harriet Tubman escaped from slavery, she returned to slave-holding states many times to help other slaves escape. She led them safely to the northern free states and to Canada. It was very dangerous to be a runaway slave. There were rewards for their capture, and ads like you see here described slaves in detail. Whenever Tubman led a group of slaves to freedom, she placed herself in great danger. There was a bounty offered for her capture because she was a fugitive slave herself, and she was breaking the law in slave states by helping other slaves escape. What do you think Tubman did when someone she was helping became frightened and wanted to turn back?
