HARRIET tells the real-life story of iconic woman of faith and freedom fighter, Harriet Tubman. Starring Tony Award-winning Cynthia Erivo (Widows, Bad Times at the El Royale), Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton, Murder on the Orient Express), Janelle Monáe (Hidden Figures, UglyDolls), and Joe Alwyn (The Favourite, Mary Queen of Scots). The film Directed by Kasi Lemmons is the first 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
The Powerful true story 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 generation 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!
Set to open November 1st, the film illustrates the power of GOD working through Harriet as she treks through nearly 100 miles of secret passageways to freedom – singlehandedly rescuing more than 70 slaves over 19 faith-fueled expeditions.
