This Wednesday November 6, 2019 we will be showing the movie “Thanks to Hank” hosted by Richard Carrazza.

Thanks to Hank is a feature film about Hank Wilson, the fiercest gay activist you never heard of. In San Francisco in the 1970s, Hank was the Johnny Appleseed of gay liberation. Everywhere he went, new organizations sprang up. He founded or co-founded the first gay teachers association, the first out gay democratic club, the first AIDS activist organization, and much more. The AIDS Candlelight Vigil he put together, five years before the formation of ACTUP (he was a founder of ACTUP too) is now the International AIDS Candlelight memorial, which takes place in 1,200 community organizations in 150 countries. But what really set Hank apart was his commitment to poor. He spent two decades running a 150-room SRO hotel as an unfunded hospice for the indigent dying of AIDS.ThanksToHank

Who Was Harriet Tubman?

Born into slavery in Maryland, Harriet Tubman escaped to freedom in the North in 1849 to become the most famous “conductor” on the Underground Railroad. Tubman risked her life to lead hundreds of family members and other slaves from the plantation system to freedom on this elaborate secret network of safe houses. A leading abolitionist before the American Civil War, Tubman also helped the Union Army during the war, working as a spy among other roles.

After the Civil War ended, Tubman dedicated her life to helping impoverished former slaves and the elderly. In honor of her life and by popular demand, in 2016, the U.S. Treasury Department announced that Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the center of a new $20 bill.

9FE03779-B68B-407F-8CE7-0E17AE0E3953

PLOT

  • The extraordinary tale of Harriet Tubman’s escape from slavery and transformation into one of America’s greatest heroes, whose courage, ingenuity, and tenacity freed hundreds of slaves and changed the course of history.

    Based on the thrilling and inspirational life of an iconic American freedom fighter, Harriet tells the extraordinary tale of Harriet Tubman’s escape from slavery and transformation into one of America’s greatest heroes. Her courage, ingenuity, and tenacity freed hundreds of slaves and changed the course of history.

History of Harriet Tubman and $20 bill

On April 20, 2016, it was announced by the Obama Administration that Alexander Hamilton would remain the primary face on the $10 bill, due in part to the sudden popularity of the first Treasury Secretary after the success of the Broadway musical Hamilton. It was simultaneously announced that Harriet Tubman‘s likeness would appear on the $20 bill while Andrew Jackson would now appear on the reverse with the White House.

In 2016, candidate Trump told NBC that stripping his favorite president, the populist and slave owner, Andrew Jackson, from the $20 bill was “pure political correctness.” He suggested that Tubman be bumped to the $2 bill, which is no longer printed.

However, on August 31, 2017,  Trump’s Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that he would not commit to putting Tubman on the twenty-dollar bill, explaining “People have been on the bills for a long period of time. This is something we’ll consider; right now we have a lot more important issues to focus on.  According to a Bureau of Engraving and Printing spokesperson, the next redesigned bill will be the ten-dollar bill, not set to be released into circulation until at least 2026. Because of this, it appears that a redesigned twenty-dollar bill featuring Tubman might not be released until years after the original 2020 release date.

 

BRITISH ACTRESS CYNTHIA ERIVO STARS IN “HARRIET” (TUBMAN)

  • In November, fans will watch Cynthia Erivo star in the upcoming Harriet Tubman biopic, Harriet.

  • Previously, she’s appeared in numerous Broadway productions and films, and she’s made a splash thanks to her angelic singing voice. 


British actress Cynthia Erivo astonished audiences with her star turn in Broadway’s The Color Purple in 2015. She went on to win a Tony for her portrayal of Celie in 2016, and that same year she took home a Grammy (for the cast album) and later a daytime Emmy for performing on NBC.
