One of Harriet Tubman’s descendants says putting the abolitionist on the $20 bill is even more important after the Trump administration put the initiative on hold.

Now, with President Joe Biden in the Oval Office, the effort to have Tubman’s face on the $20 has been restored.

Rita Daniels is a distant relative of Tubman; her late mother was Tubman’s great-great-niece. She spearheads the Harriet Tubman Learning Center in the Atlanta area and has carried on the push to have her ancestor’s likeness on the bill.

For Daniels it’s simple -- she thinks former President Donald Trump didn’t want Tubman on the $20 because she was a Black woman and a slave.
