Description
Golden Legacy Illustrated History Magazine: The Saga of Harriet Tubman, "The Moses of Her People," Volume 2. The front cover of the book features a large detailed illustration of Harriet Tubman. Tubman is portrayed with her body facing the viewer but with her head turned, looking over her proper right shoulder at a large fire in the distance. Trees and tall grass surround her and two people are following behind her. She is wearing a blue coat, shirt, satchel bag, and has a kerchief tied over her hair. The illustration is framed with yellow bands and white columns on either side. The masthead at the top is printed in black text in a yellow box that reads [GOLDEN LEGACY / ILLUSTRATED HISTORY MAGAZINE], set against a black background. The logo for Fitzgerald Publishing Company is printed in a yellow circle to the left of the masthead. It has the initials [F / P] printed in white and black ink. A yellow circle to the right of the masthead displays the cover price [25¢] printed in black ink. The interior pages are newsprint with color illustrations. The last few pages include short biographies on Daniel Hale Williams, Ira Aldridge, Bishop James Augustine Healy, Jean-Baptiste-Pointe Du Sable, and a review of Golden Legacy. The back cover features a full color advertisement for Coca-Cola with Carmen de Lavallade. The comic book has thirty-one pages.
