I am not one who would rail at the public if one of my pictures failed to 'get across.' The public knows art. I have never yet been connected with a failure, but, if I were, I would blame myself, not my audience.
Synopsis: Having been born and raised into slavery, Harriet works hard and does as she is told. However, she longs to be free and hopes to escape to the "promise land." After hearing about an "underground railroad" and learning of a Quaker woman up the river who helps slaves "get on," Harriet tells her father she is escaping.
