Not too long ago, the Harriet Tubman biopic (starring Black British actress/singer Cynthia Erivo as Harriet Tubman) was released in theaters. With said biopic making its theatrical rounds, a rumor also started making its rounds not too long ago stating that Julia Roberts (a white actress) was considered to play Harriet Tubman when the idea of a biopic came up 25 years back.
