WALTERBORO, S.C. - Auburn icon Harriet Tubman will once again provide safe passage to the North. And, as a sign of the times, to the South as well.

Work began last week in South Carolina to expand a U.S. Highway 17 bridge over the Combahee River, which will be named after the former leader of the Underground Railroad. The bridge will be just south of where historians think Tubman helped lead a Union raid on several plantations that freed more than 750 slaves in 1863.

I think its OK to do such but....

I read where one of our ANCESTORS wonder WHY ANYONE WOULD NAME A SCHOOL AFTER HIMSELF.

It just PUZZLED HIM GREATLY.

In the END, he gave his OK but still WONDER.

I think HARRIET TUBMAN would THINK the SAME.

Wonder WHY?

Is there FREEDOM for US from RUTHLESS WHITE on either SIDE of the BRIDGE?

Have the COMMUNITIES on EACH SIDE of the BRIDGE was DIRECTLY INVOLVED with ITS BUILDING?

So far in my OPINION I SEE BONDAGE.

And HARRIET TUBMAN was a GUIDE to FREEDOM.

Oh well.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
