It was recently announced that the new twenty dollar bill would feature Harriet Tubman. As an expert in Tubman's history, our department's own Catherine Clinton was consulted by several press outlets regarding this historic announcement.

In 2005, Clinton released a book titled Harriet Tubman: The Road to Freedom, which is available here and everywhere books are sold. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew cites this book as an important influence on his decision to feature Harriet Tubman on the twenty dollar bill. He discusses the book and his decision in an article by USA TODAY, featured here.

Other media outlets that have spoken to Dr. Clinton regarding her book are:
