About the Program

Reading Sarah Hopkins Bradford’s 1902 edition of Harriet, the Moses of her People, Phillip Hesser discovered a passage about Harriet Tubman meeting with Pandita Ramabai and an “Indian girl from the far West.” Phil set to work shedding light on the short passage and found much more than meets the eye about the meeting of this “remarkable trio.” Join Phil as he describes how he was able to crack the case – learning about what was said at the meeting and the identity of the “Indian girl.” You won’t want to miss this backgrounder on his talk at the Cayuga Museum’s Carriage House Theater on May 19. Parking is available in a lot adjacent to the Carriage House on Orchard Ave, and in front of the museum on Genesee Street.
