Harriet Tubman

There has been an online poll going on for some time now to finally put a woman on U.S currency through the Grassroots Campaign, titled “Women On 20s” , and now the votes are in and revealed the hopes of one day abolitionist Harriet Tubman could replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.

Petitions to replace Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman were taken to the White House and Obama himself and the people have spoken, more than 600,000 people voted.

The mother of freedom won against some other amazing women in American history such as Eleanor Roosevelt, Rosa Parks and Wilma Mankiller.

I honestly think this is a magnificent idea! Now how dope is that, not only will a woman possibly be the face on American money  but an African American woman at that. We sure could use more changes and diversity  in America, the land of the “free”. Change is good people!
