Juneteenth and Harriet Tubman

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." 

We are spotlighting the true story of an incredible American hero who changed the world and whose influence continues to do so today.

TheArchive proudly presents A Woman Called Moses, the seminal 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:
