As Black History Month comes to a close, I thought I'd take one more look at an amazing person -- a woman -- who made an incredible difference in the lives of African-Americans and help forged a change in our nation.  It is hard for me to imagine what amazing courage she had to possess to do what she did -- escaping from slavery herself, and then returning more than a dozen times to rescue more than 70 slaves through the Underground Railroad. She later helped John Brown recruit men for his raid on Harpers Ferry in West Virginia, and in the post-war era struggled for women's suffrage -- AMAZING.
