For centuries slavery reigned in parts of America, forcing an entire people into a lifetime of suffering and servitude. Living under the thumb of this oppressive system, young Harriet Tubman prayed ceaselessly that she and her family would be set free. Little did she know, God would use her and her resolute faith in Jesus to rescue not only her own family, but hundreds of other enslaved African-Americans as well. Discover how Harriet followed God, became the Moses of her people, and persevered despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles in this latest episode of The Torchlighters.
This entry in the acclaimed animated Torchlighters series tells the remarkable story of Harriet Tubman, a Maryland slave who escaped to freedom in Pennsylvania via the Underground Railroad and then repeatedly returned to help her family and others escape. We meet Harriet as a little girl with a strong will, subjected to harsh treatment by slave masters and being a worry to her oppressed parents, who fear for her. In her 20s, Tubman is surreptitiously informed about the Underground Railroad—a network of havens for runaway slaves heading north. Her courage and determination reveal themselves when she chooses to go back to Maryland and lead her mother and father to freedom, and then helps many more African Americans do the same. The script doesn’t get into later aspects of Tubman’s mission (spying for the Union Army, working with abolitionist John Brown), but it does an excellent job of putting her historical achievements on the Underground Railroad in a meaningful context and in stirring personal terms. Highly recommended. Aud: E, I, P. (T. Keogh)
