Screening & Talk
Melena Ryzik, culture reporter for The New York Times, hosts a prerelease screening of “Harriet,” the new biopic of abolitionist and activist Harriet Tubman, followed by a conversation with two of the film’s stars, Tony Award-winning actors Cynthia Erivo (“The Color Purple”) and Leslie Odom Jr. (“Hamilton”).
Directed by Kasi Lemmons (“Eve’s Bayou”) and also starring Janelle Monáe, “Harriet” tells the extraordinary story of Harriet Tubman’s escape from slavery and transformation into an iconic freedom fighter.
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to hear Erivo, who plays Tubman, and Odom Jr., who portrays Underground Railroad conductor William Still, discuss the challenges of bringing to life these inspirational historical figures whose courage, ingenuity and tenacity helped lead hundreds of enslaved people to freedom and changed the course of history.
