​The Underground Railroad --sometimes spontaneous, and sometimes highly organized--to assist persons held in bondage in the south and northern parts America to escape from slavery. Historic places along the Underground Railroad are testament of African NubiansAmerican capabilities. The network provided an opportunity for sympathetic European Americans to play a role in resisting slavery. However, uneasily at times, men and women of both races begin to set aside assumptions about the other race and worked together on issues of mutual concern. At the most dramatic level, the Underground Railroad provided stories of guided escapes from the South, rescues of arrested fugitives in the North, complex communication systems, and individual acts of bravery and suffering in the quest for freedom for all.

​Just as slavery can be one’s situation, whether the official term or not, Just so the desire to enslave can be clothed falsely.

 A husband may tell his wife that his desire to keep her from a role in the outside world is for her goodso as to shelter her from rebuffs and demands, while his true intent is to prevent her from gaining the independence that would allow her to leave him. 

Many governments allow their citizens to vote, but the vote is hollow as the candidates are all from the same class strata. The citizens are told they are controlling the country, but as they cannot get members of all the classes on the ballet, they in fact are continuing to hand the wand of power to the upper classes, time and time again. Thus, to some degree, they remain slaves to the upper classes, which
determine where employment can be gained, the compensation for this
employment, and control behavior by threatening to black-list any who
don’t obey their rules.

NAME: Harriet Tubman a.ka. "MOSES "
• OCCUPATION: Civil Rights Activist 
• BIRTH DATE: 1820 
• DEATH DATE: March 10, 1913 
PLACE OF BIRTH: Dorchester County, Maryland
"I was the conductor of the Underground Railroad for eight years, and I can say what most conductors can't say; I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger."

"I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more, if only they knew they were slaves."

"I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other."

Harriet Tubman was an African-American abolitionist who helped to free many slaves. Born into slavery in Dorchester County, Maryland, around 1820, Tubman escaped to the North and became an abolitionist leader and activist. She risked capture returning repeatedly to the South to guide enslaved people to freedom along the Underground Railroad. Harriet Tubman died in Auburn, New York, in 1913.

One of the great myths about vegetarians and vegans is that they do not get enough protein. This is a myth perpetuated by the meat industry. There have been many proven health advantages of being a vegetarian, and no evidence that humans who eat a meatless diet will lack protein.

What are some vegetarian protein sources? Soy is the most complete and digestible of all the vegetarian protein sources, containing all the essential amino acids. It is made into many different foods, for vegans who do not eat animal byproducts such as cheese, eggs or yogurt. Soy makes out to be a very delicious substitute.              Flash Fact by the FactFinders
