Baltimore's Hidden Communication:(Un)written Words by Harriet Tubman and Eleanor Roosevelt and Her Journalist, Lorena Hickok By Katherine Cottle, Goucher College Abstract: “Baltimore's Hidden Communication: Un(written) Words by Harriet Tubman and Eleanor Roosevelt and her Journalist, Lorena Hickok” explores the hidden words used to divert secret communication around the societal and geographical borders and boundaries of 19 th- and 20 th- century America. Tubman's unwritten words and Eleanor Roosevelt’s and Lorena Hickok’s written (but inaccessible and/or destroyed) words passed through and influenced the Baltimore landscape; however, these communicative routes remain absent from standard public histories. Keywords: Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt, Lorena Hickok, communication, Baltimore Resumen: “La comunicación clandestina de Baltimore: Palabras (no) escritas por Harriet Tubman y Eleanor Roosevelt y su periodista, Lorena Hickok” explora las palabras escondidas que se usaron para transmitir comunicaciones secretas a través de las barreras impuestas por la sociedad y la geografía en los siglos 19 y 20 en Estados Unidos. Las palabras no escritas por Eleanor Roosevelt y las palabras escritas (pero inaccesibles y/o destruidas) de Eleanor Roosevelt y Lorena Hickok trascendieron e influenciaron el panorama de Baltimore; sin embargo, estas rutas comunicativas permanecen ausentes en las historias públicas comunes.
