Putting Harriet Tubman's Face on the $20 Bill Isn't Progress

The Biden Administration announced its plan to return to an Obama-era initiative to put Harriet Tubman’s face on the U.S. $20 bill. Based on current designs, a statue of Jackson would remain on the back of the bill, while Harriet Tubman would grace the front. Anti-slavery crusader Harriet Tubman is seen in a picture from the Library of Congress taken by photographer H.B. Nothing short, I am sure, of broad structural change together with specific and targeted systemic interventions to aid Black women and Black communities. Perhaps we need the Harriet Tubman Reparations Act or the Harriet Tubman Abolition of Prisons Act.
