In the summer of 2020, America reckoned with issues of racism and injustice. So, when the call went out for poems about CNY’s history, I thought of our area’s legacy of social activism, from abolitionism to Women’s Rights. And who better to embody that heritage than Harriet Tubman, conductor on the Underground Railroad and women’s suffrage activist? Many area homes have “hidey-holes,” where enslaved people took cover on their way to Canada and freedom.

There is still much to be done to secure equality and justice for all people. But our local history proves that even one person of good will can make a difference.
