This film is unique in that black people are telling their own story. Typically, black actors perform in films created by white folks, but “Harriet” was produced, written, directed, and acted by African Americans. The film portrays the life of Harriet Tubman (1822-1913). We expect to see her navigating the underground railroad, eventually leading 70 slaves to freedom, but we don’t expect to see her serve as an armed scout and spy for the Union Army in the Civil War during which she actually led an armed expedition. Never resting on her laurels, she worked for women’s suffrage later in life. 125 minutes.
