Harriet Tubman: a portrait

This is another graphite drawing in my humanitarian series, a portrait of Harriet Tubman.  Harriet Tubman was an amazing woman, an African-American abolitionist, and Union spy during the American Civil War.  She made thirteen missions to rescue more than 70 slaves using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad.
