Crosswalk's review of Harriet says,
"We know her as Harriet Tubman. But originally, she was known by a different name, “Minty.” Minty is a resolute and brave Christian woman living in 1840s Maryland – a state where African Americans have no rights and where a white person can own another person based entirely on the color of their skin. Minty is a slave. So are her parents. And her siblings. And most black people she knows. But Minty doesn’t intend to stay in shackles forever. Even though she may die trying, she wants to escape. “I wanna be free,” she tells an acquaintance. Thus, Minty sets out in the middle of the night, with the goal of traveling 100 miles to the city of Philadelphia, where African Americans live in freedom. She’ll make the trip alone – yes – but she believes in a God who will guide and protect her."
