Radical Freedom Fighter on U.S. Currency? Yo No Se

Let’s honor Harriet Tubman by curating a museum dedicated to her legacy and why it is so powerful and why we need people like her today. Let’s name a bridge after her. Hell. We do that for KKK grand wizards. But putting her name on the currency of a country built on the backs of her enslaved ancestors seems a whole lot more like a very public attempt to seem enlightened than a way to pay homage, especially with everything going on socially and politically right now. When you have the same folks calling rioters in Baltimore animals supporting her on the 20 dollar bill you have to wonder the worth of such a move. Maybe it’s just me? #HarrietTubman
