This is a wonderful movie that all black people must see.
I remember learning about Harriet Tubman and reading a few books about her as a child. When I learned that there was a movie, I knew I had to see it and I purchased it. After seeing it for the first time it was captivating and inspiring. I absolutely love this movie, it is my favorite of all times. I purchased this movie many years ago and I have watched it many times in fact it stays in my DVD player at all times (test me). I can recite most of the lines from the move. My favorite is the quote she uses that defies struggles. That was an epiphany moment, it changed my outlook on struggles and gave new meaning to endurance. The 1st time I saw this movie she became my hero! I remember thinking, for a woman living in those times and being confined to that situation, to show that kind of strength was incredible and life changing for me. Cicely Tyson brought her to life for me, no one else (in my opinion) could've played her.
