Juneteenth: Devotion to Freedom

Originally published June 19, 2020 and updated June 19th, 2023

Commemorating an American Hero.

Frederick Douglass wrote a letter to Harriet Tubman and said the following:
"The midnight sky and the silent stars have been the witnesses of your devotion to freedom and of your heroism…I know of no one who has willingly encountered more perils and hardships to serve our enslaved people than you have." 

This Juneteenth

we spotlight a story about an incredible American hero who changed the world. TheArchive proudly presents A Woman Called Moses, a miniseries honoring the life of Harriett Tubman who summoned the strength and indomitable will to defy and overcome a tyrannous system.

Debuting in 1978...

A Woman Called Moses was produced as a television miniseries and based on the life of Harriet Tubman, the escaped slave who organized the infamous Underground Railroad, ultimately leading scores from enslavement to freedom.

Emmy, Tony, and Oscar-Winning Cicely Tyson...

delivers a tour de force performance as Tubman. The legendary Orson Welles narrates her journey: a selfless devotion to the lives of those she freed from the grips of oppression.   
"There are some marvelous moments and splendid performances in 'A Woman Called Moses,'" says its 1978 New York Times review. "Miss Tyson, gives another of her beautifully controlled performances, combining tremendous energy with intelligent restraint."

Said Tubman:

"Every great dream begins with a dreamer.  Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."
