When Mashona Council arrived in Dorchester County from where she lives in Atlanta, Georgia, she didn’t expect much attention. Her mission to walk the entire Maryland portion of the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway was a personal challenge and a spiritual quest. But her 125-mile “Freedom Walk,” carrying the spirit of Harriet Tubman, inspired thousands as people learned of her quest through social media. She began her walk in Cambridge on Sept. 17, the same day that Tubman attempted her first escape from slavery back in 1849. She finished seven days later as she crossed the line from Maryland into Delaware.
