Harriet Is Coming, A Story Long Overdue!

I am so happy that someone finally dedicated an entire movie to one of African Americans Unsung Heroe’s, Harriet Tubman!

 

In theaters November 1, HARRIET tells the real-life story of the iconic woman of faith and freedom fighter, Harriet Tubman. Starring Tony Award-winning Cynthia Erivo (WidowsBad Times at the El Royale), Leslie Odom Jr. (HamiltonMurder on the Orient Express), Janelle Monáe (Hidden FiguresUglyDolls), and Joe Alwyn (The FavouriteMary Queen of Scots), HARRIET is the first film to follow Tubman on her escape from slavery and subsequent missions to free dozens of slaves through the Underground Railroad in the face of growing pre-Civil War adversity.

 

Directed by Kasi Lemmons (Luke CageTalk to Me), who wrote the screenplay with Gregory Allen Howard (Remember the TitansAli), the film illustrates the power of GOD working through Harriet Tubman as she treks through nearly 100 miles of secret passageways to get to freedom – singlehandedly rescuing more than 70 slaves over 19 faith-fueled expeditions.
