Harriet Tubman to Replace Andrew Jackson?
According to USA Today, Harriet Tubman is at the top of the list of possible people to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.
A grassroots campaign called "Women on 20s" hopes to change both the lack of women and the lack of people of color on U.S. paper currency. (For this, we'll skip over the fact that at least three people on U.S. bills are said to have African ancestry.)
After the first round of voting, the four finalists were Tubman, Wilma Mankiller, Eleanor Roosevelt and Rosa Parks. The second round saw Tubman in the lead. Is America ready for diversity in money? I know one thing: If Harriet Tubman becomes the face on the $20 bill, I'll be getting at least $1,000 in 20s-- you know, just in case they change their minds.
