Our Objective 
(click photo to enlarge)

We have accomplished a great deal in our efforts to realize plans to erect a monument honoring the remarkable former slave, abolitionist, worker on the Underground Railroad, spy, nurse, humanitarian, Harriet Ross Tubman. 

We have decided on a spot along the Delaware River adjacent to Lion’s Park where this symbol of heroic black struggle and accomplishment will stand, pointing northward in close proximity to other monuments to ethnic presence and participation. 

Close to the juncture of the Canal and the Delaware River, this placement is a relevant and cogent reminder of the fact that many persons, hidden beneath cargo on canal barges, escaped bondage in the south using this waterway as a means to reach safety in the north. 

To erect a statue is no easy task, and considerable funds must be raised to achieve our goal, a freestanding life sized bronze figure pointing towards the guiding North Star. 

This a call for membership in the African American Historical and Cultural Society of Bucks County, whose dedication is to document the history and presence of blacks in this area, as well as a request for specific donations to assist in erecting this statue of Harriet Ross Tubman.  

PRESERVE THE LEGACY OF AN AMERICAN HERO 

The African American Historical and Cultural Society of Bucks County has accepted the help of The Bucks County Committee For Interracial Harmony in forming an alliance for the purpose of developing diverse personnel whose objectives will be to stimulate awareness as well as raise funds for the Tubman monument. 

UNVEILING DATE OF PROPOSED
HARRIET TUBMAN STATUE – June 24, 2006
