In her new book recounting the 2016 presidential campaign, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton shares a story from an earlier period of her life: One of her visits to the Harriet Tubman Home in Auburn.
Clinton’s book, “What Happened,” was released Tuesday. On the page before the author’s note she wrote is a quote that’s attributed to Tubman.
“If you are tired, keep going. If you are scared, keep going. If you are hungry, keep going. If you want to taste freedom, keep going.”
While there’s no evidence Tubman actually uttered those words, the quote served as a lead-in to Clinton’s explanation why she wrote the book.
