Played by Cynthia Erivo and directed by Kasi Lemmons, Harriet tells the extraordinary tale of her escape from slavery to the North in 1849 and her transformation into one of the most infamous 'conductors' on the Underground Railroad, helping hundreds of enslaved black people to freedom and becoming one of America's greatest heroes.
