$20 Bill: Biden Admin To Fast-Track Replacement of Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman

According to NBC News, the Biden administration is trying to speed up the effort to replace America’s seventh president, Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill.

The idea of placing Tubman’s image on the $20 bill started in 2016. Tubman is considered to be the pioneer of the “Underground Railroad” movement. The Underground Railroad was a network of secret routes and safe houses established in the United States during the early to mid-19th century, and used by enslaved African-Americans to escape into free states and Canada.

“The Treasury Department is taking steps to resume efforts to put Harriet Tubman on the front of the new $20 notes,” said Psaki, commenting that American currency should “reflect the history and diversity of our country, and Harriet Tubman’s image gracing the new $20 note would certainly reflect that.”
