Sunday, March 11, 2018 was the 105th anniversary of Harriet Tubman’s death. In honor of her accomplishments during her life, the City of Baltimore renamed the space where the statue of Confederate Generals Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson, and Robert E. Lee once stood. A tree-filled area of Wyman Park Dell, near Johns Hopkins University, is now Harriet Tubman Grove.
Friends of Wyman Park Dell, a nonprofit organization that supports this park, wrote a letter to the City Council in October welcoming the renaming.
In addition, Harriet Tubman Day celebrations were held all across Maryland, including at the state capital.
…… and in Harlem, Harriet Tubman monument, “Swing Low” by artist Alison Saar, located on Frederick Douglass Boulevard at St Nicholas Avenue and 121st Street.
