A day before the holiday in which America celebrates freedom, Syracuse and Onondaga County leaders are celebrating another icon of freedom – Harriet Tubman. They announced winners of the National Harriet Tubman Freedom awards. Sean McLeod is with the New York Institute of Dance and executive Producer of the awards.
“And what better icon do we have in our country to represent freedom. The concept of what that struggle movement looked like, and the fact that Central New York was central in that freedom movement, is very significant.”
