Discover more about these powerful historical figures.

Two original documentaries shed light on the lives of a pair of towering icons in the struggle to end slavery.

HARRIET TUBMAN: VISIONS OF FREEDOM is a nuanced portrait of the woman known as the conductor of the Underground Railroad, who risked her own freedom and life to liberate others from slavery.

BECOMING FREDERICK DOUGLASS is the story of how a man born into slavery became one of the most prominent statesmen and influential voices for democracy in American history.

“There are no two people more important to our country’s history than Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman. Their remarkable lives and contributions were a critical part of the 19th century, and their legacies help us understand who we are as a nation. We are honored to share their stories with a country that continues to grapple with the impact of slavery and debate notions of citizenship, democracy and freedom.”
