Google_Harriet Tubman

Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock, you know all too well that Google Doodles are almost always worth looking forward to. The popular search engine has made it a staple to honor and tribute important people and events in American society by personalizing its homepage logo occasionally. On this first day of Black History Month 2014, Google dedicated its doodle to Harriet Tubman.

While not nearly as epic as its Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. doodle on MLK Day last month, it’s still pretty damn cool that Google is honoring the culture as opposed to pimping it like McDonald’s and celebrating the so-called “Black Moses” of the American slavery period, who was responsible for liberating and helping thousands of slaves from the southern states use the Underground Railroad to escape up north to freedom.
