Martha Teichner of CBS Sunday Morning joined OTD and our partners on the Eastern Shore for an upcoming feature on the life of Harriet Tubman and the tourism assets that celebrate her memory. The story, which is slated to run in October, coincides with the upcoming release of “Harriet,” the first major motion picture to honor the life of this American hero. OTD would like to thank all its partners, including Harriet Tubman biographer Kate Larson, who was interviewed extensively for the CBS piece. Larson was also one of the consultants on the development of the Harriet Tubman UGRR Byway.
