Product Description:

This television mini series stars Cicely Tyson, in one of her best performances, as Harriet Ross Tubman, the founder of the Underground Railroad, which provided a road to Northern freedom for hundreds of slaves. Orson Welles narrates her amazing story, as she not only helped slaves, but also the Union Army as a reconnaissance agent. No less active later in life, Tubman was also an instrumental figure within the women's suffrage movement with connections to many powerful political figures. However, she is most known for helping slaves escape their owners during the Civil War, a task she did so well that she became known as Moses to the thousands she freed.

Plot Synopsis:

This epic drama tells the inspiring real-life story of Underground Railroad founder Harriet Tubman. In addition to showing how she helped many slaves obtain their freedom, the film focuses on Tubman's early life in the antebellum South and her determined efforts to buy herself out of slavery. We also see how she helped mobilize black troops for the Union Army during the Civil War.
