You’ve learned about this woman during Black History Month in school and have seen her face come up in history books now and then. But now, the legendary story of Harriet Tubman is going to be made into a biopic.
The new film Harriet, starring Cynthis Erivo, tells the extraordinary true story of Harriet Tubman. Just in case you don’t know (or to refresh your memory), Tubman was responsible for helping free slaves via the Underground Railroad in the 1800s.
The film comes out on November 1, 2019. But before you see it, get all the facts here. You know, so you can show off to your movie night date that you actually learned something in history class.
