This is an integrated Arts, Math, Literature, and History Experience based on current elementary classroom curriculum, designed to introduce African American historical figures Harriet Tubman and Jacob Lawrence. Children will read "Harriet and the Promised Land" by Jacob Lawrence, one of America’s most prominent African American artists who told the inspiring story of Harriet Tubman in both verse and paintings. Children will learn about Jacob Lawrence’s body of work as they analyze his paintings' signature style, colors, and geometry; as well as the subject of his book, Harriet Tubman and The Underground Railroad that led so many of her fellow slaves to freedom during the Civil War. Children will spend time reflecting on Tubman and Lawrence's important contributions to American History, and paint their own works of art inspired by these two visionaries.
