Jen and Nicole discuss Harriet, how the movie fell flat despite excellent performances by the cast, the serious problem with the black slave catcher character who was a grotesque stereotype, and how badly the supernatural element undercut the true heroism of Harriet Tubman. Ultimately, we're let down by the portrayal of Harriet Tubman's heroism as supernatural in place of a true understanding of the woman herself.
Jen recommends Drunk History - Harriet Tubman Leads an Army of Bad B*tches. Nicole recommends a foot hammock for more comfortable airplane trips (we don't get any money if you click the link).
