Today’s Essence Magazine #LunchTimeDebate Recap: Should Harriet Tubman Be Pictured On The $20 Bill?

Today I had the honor of participating in @Essence_Debate’s #LunchTimeDebate, which to say the least, ways very interesting! Today’s topic was:

Should Harriet Tubman Be Pictured On The $20 Bill?

should harrient tubman be the new face of the $20 bill?

Apparently there was an unofficial poll, and Ms. Tubman was voted the winner. Personally, I think this would be a great way for African Americans to be recognized, as women have played a GREAT role in shaping America, yet we still are overlooked. However, I don’t truly know if putting her face on the $20 bill is quite the right move. Either way, here’s the recap (from my twitter of course) if you’d like to see the ENTIRE recap, please visit this link and their twitter account.

Okay you guys that took a LOT of work! (Lol) But I feel as though this conversation was definitely important enough to share with everyone. (And trust me, that’s probably only 1/3 of this convo. Lol)

What do you guys think? Should Harriet Tubman be the face of the new $20 bills? Do you agree with what everyone said? Leave a comment below and let me know!
