“I love it,” Oprah Winfrey shouted, pumping her fist in the air.
There was no mistaking her feelings about Harriet Tubman being selected as the next face of the $20 dollar bill.
“That was my first choice. My second choice was Sojourner Truth,” Winfrey told The Associated Press Wednesday on the red carpet for her new series, “Greenleaf.” Like Tubman, Truth also was an abolitionist during the 19th century.
“I’m not going to cry here for AP, but I think that’s the best choice. That is the choice for America,” Winfrey said.
Tubman, a prominent anti-slavery activist, will be the first African-American to appear on an American banknote and the first woman to appear on one in a century. Her portrait will replace former President Andrew Jackson, who will be moved to the back of the redesigned $20 bill.
