Advent: Harriet Tubman and the promised land
Can we find joy and beauty in the midst of struggle? Today Graham Sparkes draws us close to reveal the contextual layers behind Jacob Lawrence’s painting.

Our role is both to celebrate stories of joy and beauty, and to be those who are making these stories reality today.
