aaduna + Tubman – Reflections on being there when…

When aaduna started publishing in 2011, the journal provided a direct link to information on an American hero, Harriet Tubman, who is buried in Fort Hill Cemetery, Auburn, NY, the home of aaduna , as well as the Harriet Tubman Boosters Club’s work to promote the legacy of Tubman.   Back then, the rationale was to ensure that as aaduna developed its expanding national and global audience, readers would get to know a cornerstone of American history – a woman dedicated to social justice, peace, human and equal rights, and the dynamic role of women in creating significant societal, political, and economic change. When Tubman’s 2013 centennial was   approaching, a year earlier, aaduna partnered with poetry contributor, Cyd Charisse Fulton, to present her original poems inspired by the life and legacy of Harriet Tubman titled, “Feeding Off of the North Star” at Tubman’s Thompson Memorial AME Zion Church located on Franklin Street in Auburn.    aaduna Poet, Cyd Charis
