Very bad injustice

When I attended a Girl Scout book club meeting earlier this summer, we discussed the book Who Was Harriet Tubman? by Yona Zeldis McDonough.

We learned that Harriet Tubman had to leave her parents when she was six-years-old because she was “hired out” to work for a weaver. When Harriet dropped the yarn, she was whipped. Then, when she was seven, Harriet worked helping Miss Susan with her baby. If the baby cried, Miss Susan whipped her.

What did the Girl Scouts think about how Harriet was treated? “I think the injustice was very bad,” one seven-year-old said.
