Where’s My Harriet Tubman $20 Bill?

Racist misogyny is so last century

I didn’t know much about Harriet Tubman until I listened to an audio version of The Water Dancer, a fantastic book by Ta-Nehisi Coates which I reviewed here. In that story she’s portrayed as a supernatural figure who has magical abilities to bring people out of slavery in the South, aka The Coffin, to freedom in the North.
