What obstacles did Harriet Tubman face in her quest to help free other slaves?

User Avatar
Harriet Tubman indeed faced many obstacles in her quest to help free other slaves. Due to the Fugitive Slave Law, her capture was worth $40,000. And there were hired people to try and capture her along her journey. She could have been sent to prison. I believe she was considered an outlaw.

Was Julia Roberts really considered for the role of Harriet Tubman?

User Avatar
Screenwriter and producer Gregory Allen Howard revealed in a Q&A that when presented with the original script for the Harriet Tubman biopic in the 1990s, one studio executive suggested that Julia Roberts take on the iconic role. When it was pointed out that Harriet Tubman was African American, the executive responded, “It was so long ago. No one is going to know the difference.” The film in question, titled Harriet, was just released in theaters on Nov. 1, 2019 and stars Cynthia Erivo in the lead role.

Why did harriet Tubman always have a bandana on her head?

User Avatar
She always wore a bandana on her head because when she was hit by the weight it hit her on her forehead (on the top) and she wore it to cover up the wound that she had for her entire life.
