According to the Harriet Tubman Learning Center website:
The Harriet Tubman Learning Center was established in February of 2015 by President & Founder Rita Daniels along with Board Member Geraldine Copes-Daniels to initiate the HTLC. These visionaries took personal responsibility for making a positive impact on literacy. Their goal is to initiate strategies that will provide exceptional science-based programs proven to empower youth and propel them towards future sustainability.
