Tubman descendants, (from right to left: Geraldine Daniels, Laberta Gaskin-Greenlea, and Pauline Copes Johnson) with statue. Behind them are Elizabeth Rankin Fulcher of the Black Women's Leadership Caucus and John Watusi Branch, Director, The Afrikan Poetry Theatre/Center for Culture, Jamaica, NY, and co-coordinator of the Nana Tubman Honor in Ghana. This international honor of their esteemed Great-Aunt Harriet marked their first visit to the Ghanaian homeland from which the Tubman clan is noted to be descended.
Original Tubman garment designs created in Ghana by the Queen Mother of Ofoase at the request of Br. Sam Mensah, who accompanied us on the Nana Tubman Honor in Ghana Journey.
(If interested in one of these original Nana Tubman designs by the Queen Mother and Chief Mensah, e-mail Akan@aol.com. Imagine owning a historical top in honor of this great ancestor designed by a Ghanaian Queen Mother and Chief! Definitely a rare keepsake to pass down the family line.)
