    I’m actually happy. Like I’ve read some mean comments about her and stuff. I get she was (maybe not racist or colourist) but she insulted black Americans. Which resulted in Cynthia getting a lot of criticism.
    But I’m glad I haven’t seen much.
    I’m proud of her and she’s still my role model. It shows she isn’t perfect and see make mistakes!
    Anyway I’m a proud Nigerian and I’m here !!! Proud and happy! Go us!!! 🇳🇬 🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬
    Respect to all black communities!!!!

            JKF was behind a series of films called Profiles in Courage. I remember watching one about Harriet Tubman in 5th grade class. Yeah...they set up the film projector and its the only film of that series I remember. There was a film about Harriet Tubman made before the recent movie.

                                                    I saw the movie "Harriet" yesterday. Wow! What an amazing film! What an amazing woman!

                                                    It gave me chills, made me angry as well as brought tears of joy to my eyes.

                                                    I am proud to say that I initiated a thunderous applause at the end AND when cynthia Erivo's name appeared in the credits.

                                                    I hope teachers will take students to see this movie and closley study the life and bravery of Harriet Tubman.

If she would that extraordinary you will know more about her. And if you scroll through the comments you will notice color in the comments not ask yourself why is that.?. You will know this one particular color more than others giving her accolades it is because they viewed the movie they feel uncomfortable with the movie so they must push the narrative it was all done for good and pretend that they don't notice how deceitful and deceptive the movie is towards African-Americans. Bigger long that within itself implies something we all know about how disgusting how devious. But we all will pretend like we don't know what that implies. Your lies do not work anymore and for those am I race that caught on to the b******* I wish you could change your color and be what you really wish you were for your mentality if nothing else

She is done no extraordinary work nothing noteworthy you could name any other movie other than Harriet Tubman and it's only because of the chaos of rewriting history that you even know her. Hollywood in America is playing that mine game to continue what it has been doing for decades. Pitting one group against another. The wards are not earned their given and everyone knows it. Phony phony phony
