A Woman Called Moses, 1978

There was already a made for TV movie about Harriet Tubman. It starred Cicely Tyson who provided an amazing performance. Cicely is one of the greatest actors of our time. I remember watching this as a child. It had a profound effect on me. It made me so proud of the strength of my fellow African American sisters who risked their lives to demand that this country honor its own Declaration of Independence. I wonder what the new movie will be like. On the face of it, I feel a little bothered by this Hollywood version. However, seeing is believing. A Woman called Moses can be viewed on YouTube.
