Viola Davis - Harriet Tubman - HBO


Viola Davis to portray Harriet Tubman in HBO movie.

Award-winning actress and “How to Get Away with Murder” star Viola Davis will star in an HBO movie about Harriet Tubman.

Here’s the scoop via

Based on the biography Bound For The Promised Land by historian Kate Clifford Larson, the film, now in development, tells the story of American hero Tubman. Born a slave, she escaped and, via an intricate escape network of secret routes and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad, she led more than 300 slaves to freedom in the North and later fought with the Union during the Civil War.

I’m so looking forward to this film because I know Viola is going to slay.
