Black Woman To Replace Face of American President On $20 Bill

Another history is about to made in the United States of America  as  an African American will for the very first time be among the faces on the country’s paper currency.

According to reports, iconic humanitarian and abolitionist Harriet Tubman will be replacing the seventh President of America, Andrew Jackson who currently graces the front of the $20 bill. Tubman was popular for her work with the Underground Railroad that helped former slaves escape captivity.

Tubman has been called the perfect choice as the first American woman to go on the $20 bill, as a result of her unforgettable work to end both slavery and promote women’s suffrage.

In case you think history cant be poetic: Harriet Tubman once staged a hunger strike to get $20 to bring her parents to freedom.
