Tubman Takes On The 20 Dollar Bill

July 11, 2016 This Harriet Tubman statue was created by Dr. James Hill of the Salisbury University Art Department. It is currently on display at Salisbury University.

By London Mackall

As an intern at "To The Contrary" I get to learn about women who are making a difference each day. However, I never want to forget about the incredible women from the past whose legacy continues to impact men and women today. When I found out that Harriet Tubman would be featured on a new version of the 20 dollar bill in 2020, I decided to interview professors from Salisbury University to get more insight on this historic event.

President Andrew Jackson, the current face of the bill will be relocated to the back, while an image of Tubman will be placed on the front of the bill, Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said. The new currency will be released just in time for the 100-year-anniversary of the Women’s Suffrage Movement, said Washington Post Staff Writers Ana Swanson and Abby Ohlheiser.

What Happened to Austin Brown?

July 07, 2016 Cliveden House

by Sallie Bingham

I always notice when it is difficult to find a photograph of a woman in our era, when cameras are everywhere. The absence of an image of Doris Duke at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, first alerted me to begin to search for her story. Her male relatives are amply presented there in oil portraits and busts, but not Doris, herself a generous supporter. I’ve noticed the same absence of an image in the case of my first cousin, Austin Caperton Brown, who died on the railroad track at Princeton, New Jersey on May 8th, 1954. Her obituary calls her death a suicide.
