Harriet Tubman movie.Chgo Defender

A film about Harriet Tubman opened in theaters last week, drawing more ticket-buyers than expected for Cynthia Arivo’s stirring portrait of the American woman who escaped slavery, guided others to freedom on the Underground Railroad, and led U.S. soldiers in battles to end slavery. The story unfolds like an adventure movie rather than a reverent biopic, but Tubman’s skill, courage and faith emerge through her life’s events. She was a flesh-and-blood woman, not a superhero, and she’ll likely end up on a $20 bill someday, she was so inspiring. (Chicago Defender)
