The Library will host a viewing of the 2019 biographical film ‘Harriet’ in the 2nd floor meeting room. This cinematographic portrayal of Harriet Tubman, the slave turned abolitionist, has already been nominated for and won dozens of awards.

On Tuesday, February 25, 7:00 p.m., the Kent Interfaith Alliance will cosponsor a presentation in the library’s meeting room by the Rev. Julie Blake Fisher, Rector, Christ Episcopal Church in Kent. Learn more about Tubman, including her work as an Underground Railroad Conductor, Civil War scout who participated in the rescue of 750 slaves in South Carolina, and an activist for women’s suffrage.
