March 12 at 2 p.m. and at 4 p.m.—Harriet [2019]. Based on the thrilling and inspirational life of an iconic American freedom fighter, HARRIET tells the extraordinary tale of Harriet Tubman’s escape from slavery and transformation into one of America’s greatest heroes. Her courage, ingenuity, and tenacity freed hundreds of slaves and changed the course of history. Born into slavery in 1820, in Maryland, the woman who’d later take the free name of Harriet Tubman knew evil from a young age. She was abused, manipulated and forced to watch as some of her own siblings were sold into slavery, far away from her and her family. And just when she thought emancipation was near (due to her impending nuptials with a free man named John Tubman), Harriet was brutally reminded that she would never see freedom and that all her future children would be destined for a life of captivity. But such threats have a curious way of sparking rebelliousness. And Harriet Tubman was not a woman who was willing to submit to permanent enslavement. Instead, she ran from her slave masters in Maryland, journeying more than 100 miles to the free land of Pennsylvania. There, she found her true self as a liberated woman. But as she began tasting the fruit of freedom, she knew she couldn’t keep it to herself. Soon, Harriet joined the Anti-Slavery Society in Philadelphia and later became a conductor for the Underground Railroad, obeying the voice of God and liberating hundreds of slaves, boldly proclaiming her life’s motto: “I’ma be free or die.” [Plugged In]
