With Angela Bassett making a cameo appearance on episode 3 of WGN America’s Underground; the series is slated to out-do itself with episode 6. Aisha Hinds Summons the Spirit of Harriet Tubman for a solo performance in Episode 6, entitled “Minty”.
“I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.”
Hinds says, “Playing Harriet Tubman is both a great honor and also a tremendous call to duty as we examine how familiar the pain of our past can be felt in the present. In sight of and in spite of the overwhelming obstacles stacked against her, Harriet transcended bondage and inspired generations in the pursuit of liberty.”
“Minty” will air on Wednesday, April 12 during a special time slot at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on WGN America
