The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Dr. Elizabeth Cobbs. The Melbern Glasscock Chair in American History at Texas A&M University and a senior fellow at Stanford's Hoover Institution, Dr. Cobbs is a New York Times bestselling author and a White Woman. This spring she published The Tubman Command, a fictional account of Tubman's time as a spy and nurse for the Union Army. Dr. Cobbs believes fiction is an appropriate means to share the heroism of Tubman because portions of life remain unknown. We'll discuss why a White historian selected this subject matter as well as the recent Tubman biopic that deals with similar elements of her life. #SeattleRacism INVEST in The COWS – http://paypal.me/TheCOWS Cash App: https://cash.app/$TheCOWS CALL IN NUMBER: 605.313.5164 CODE 564943#

June 19, 2019 at the Boston Athenæum.
In celebration of Juneteenth.

By the bestselling author of The Hamilton Affair, The Tubman Command is an impeccably researched historical novel that brings to light the bravery and brilliance of American icon Harriet Tubman.

It’s May 1863. Outgeneraled and outgunned, a demoralized Union Army has pulled back with massive losses at the Battle of Chancellorsville. Fort Sumter, hated symbol of the Rebellion, taunts the American navy with its artillery and underwater mines.

In Beaufort, South Carolina, one very special woman, code named Moses, is hatching a spectacular plan. Hunted by Confederates, revered by slaves, Harriet Tubman plots an expedition behind enemy lines to liberate hundreds of bondsmen and recruit them as soldiers. A bounty on her head, she has given up husband and home for the noblest cause: a nation of, by, and for the people.

The Tubman Command tells the story of Tubman at the height of her powers, when she devises the largest plantation raid of the Civil War. General David Hunter places her in charge of a team of black scouts even though skeptical of what one woman can accomplish. For her gamble to succeed, “Moses” must outwit alligators, overseers, slave catchers, sharpshooters, and even hostile Union soldiers to lead gunships up the Combahee River. Men stand in her way at every turn--though one reminds her that love shouldn’t have to be the price of freedom.
