Museums and tourism officials are honoring abolitionist Harriet Tubman, 100 years after her death.
USA Today features some of these homages
, including a contemporary art exhibit "Homage to Harriet" at Baltimore's Reginald F. Lewis Museum of African American History & Culture
. It starts March 23 and runs through June 23.
The USA Today also features three other Maryland honors to Harriet Tubman. Earlier this month, officials celebrated the groundbreaking of the 17-acre Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park, just south of Cambridge.
"The same day, the state designated a 125-mile driving tour, dubbed the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway,
that cuts through her home turf on Maryland's Eastern Shore," USA Today writes.
Maryland also passed a bill to establish the 5,700-acre Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park on Maryland's Eastern Shore.
