Viola Davis to Play Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman is one of the most well-known Black leaders in history, freeing countless slaves via the Underground Railroad. So, it’s on fitting that she’s getting three biopics. One in particular is an HBO biopic starring Viola Davis. I have 100% faith that she will kill this role. She will also serve as a producer. The biopic is based on Kate Clifford Larson’s Bound for the Promise Land. The other two biopics in the works are the WGN drama Underground and the NBC production Freedom Runproduced by Stevie Wonder.
