Juneteenth and an American Hero.



Commemorating an American Hero.

Frederick Douglass said this of Harriet Tubman:
"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 thought it only fitting to 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.   

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."

TheArchive archivists and post team (led by editor Meni Phillip) spent countless hours painstakingly...
...restoring the 35MM print from vinegar syndrome to its current HD and 4K versions. 
As a point of interest:
Our parent company Multicom Entertainment had made arrangements to showcase A Woman Called Moses in museums across America beginning with a scheduled exhibit in New York with The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). Canceled due to the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, we will begin to reschedule with MOMA and other museums as public places are given permission to re-open.
