The Story of Harriet Tubman will Finally be Told on the Big Screen (Watch the Trailer)

We’ve read and heard the story of Harriet Tubman and the underground railroad in and out of school. Harriet’s story has to be one of the most well known and heroic of black history here in America. We’ve had the luxury of seeing Harriet’s story translated on the big screen. Finally the time as come when this will be a reality, in November 1 of this year.

HARRIET tells the real-life story of 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.

HARRIET does not shy away from the Holy Spirit as Tubman describes the visions and dreams she received from God, guiding her and her followers to safety. As the “Moses” of her time and first woman to lead an armed expedition in war, HARRIET proves to be the perfect example of a fearless, faithful leader that all people of faith can relate to and admire!

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.
