    According to legend Tubman announced her departure times on the Underground Railroad at least twice a day by signing the hymn Steal Away and Follow the Drinking Gourd within ear shot of slave cabins Although her spirit was as strong as her body she carried a pistol and was prepared to use it to engender respect from whites and intestinal fortitude from cautious blacks At great risk to her own life Tubman made repeated trips into hostile southern areas to draw enslaved blacks out of captivity Over a 30 year period she lead than 300 escaping black slaves to freedom in the North Tubman was finally able to entice her own parents into the Underground Railroad and to guide then North as well to freedom's land Later during the Civil War she served as a nurse and spied for the North For over a generation after the Civil War she cared for poverty stricken freed slaves After a 40 year fight with the US government she finally received a Civil War pension Senate Committee recommended she be given 25 a month for the rest of her life But before the bill for her compensation was approved in 1898 a southern Congressman reduced the amount by 5 In the 1950's the US Department of Energy and other federal agencies sprayed cities with large black populations like Detroit Michigan to determine the impact of certain chemical through airborne spraying Neither the nature of the chemicals purpose of the studies nor the impact on blacks were ever fully disclosed to the public In 1994 the US Department of Energy at a Congressional hearing promised to make the studies public They have yet to do so

    A few inconsistencies but overall a great work by Dr Anderson Always chew the meat and spit out the bones

    The negative sounding title is about the fact that history and many American institutions like to ignore Black history and truths like slavery and discrimination I like that Anderson's book recognizes both famous and unknown heroes and sheroesI don't agree with his perspective that the women's issue is a class issue While I wholeheartedly agree that white woman commandeered the women's movement their status as white does not mean that white men are going to be the protectors of white womanhood There are still major issues and bias regarding the dynamics of race and gender But lots of men have been and continue to be uite happy and enthusiastic in oppressing and keeping all women excludedI like Anderson's salute to troublemakers and think many readers will learn new things Bit like any historian and historical narrative there is plenty to discuss
