Harriet Tubman: Myth, Memory and History.

424 pp., color illus., appendix, notes, bibliog., index. A well-researched account of the political and cultural processes by which Harriet Tubman became an iconic figure during her own lifetime and remains so into the twenty-first century. Unfortunately the inclusion of visual representations of Tubman by major African American and white artists alike are not similarly analysed (see pp. 15, 73-5, 81, 183, 225, 228-30, 243-46, 253, 314.) Pasing mention of Samuel Byrd, Jacob Lawrence, William H. Johnson, Faith RInggold, Margaret Burroughs, Fern Cunningham, Aaron Douglas, Edmonia Lewis, Jerry Pinckney, Robert Pious (as Pius). 8vo (9.5 x 6.8 in.), boards, d.j. First ed.
