"Be free or die."
"Harriet" the movie debuted in theaters last week and we were honored to be among the first to see it. The New York Times calls it "a rousing and powerful drama, respectful of both the historical record and the cravings of modern audiences". The movie starts with Harriet still living in Dorchester County, Maryland, right before her first escape. It follows her multiple journeys back to the county to free her friends and family. Cynthia Erivo flawlessly plays Harriet and brings the necessary strength to the character. The Washington Post correctly calls this movie "an ideal introduction — or reintroduction — not just to Tubman, but to the inhumane system that she refused to accept".
Harriet is in theaters now. #harrietmovie
