This Wednesday is just full of surprises. Harriet Tubman became something I’m sure she never thoughts she would be, having it not been a thing during her time, a trending topic.
On social media and news outlets alike, the name Harriet Tubman echoed as news broke that her face would replace former President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. The Treasury Department made the announcement and revealed the new changes won’t take effect until 2020. Other bill changes will keep Alexander Hamilton on the front of the $10 bill, but will feature “suffragists who fought to give women the right to vote” on the back of the currency.
Now that we got all the politically correct and facts out the way, allow me to state my opinion. I think the world, or should I say the United States, take a big inhale and exhale and calm TF down. I swear people love to be about a “cause” or create a problem when there is no reason to. Harriet Tubman being on the face of American currency is a HUGE deal. Not only as an African-American, but as a woman on the face of a major bill. Why discredit that with theories about why she was chosen for this bill and so on. Embrace change, no matter how it comes. It’s changing and it’s major.
What do you think about Harriet Tubman being the face of the $20 bill? I’m very curious to know your reaction, so share with me in the comments below.
