A woman called Moses, was a television miniseries way back in the late 70’s .It was about the life of an African American slave,Harriet Tubman played by Cicely Tyson.
Harriet escaped slavery and she help organised Undergeound Railroads for dozens of other enslaved african american both in the Southern and Northern part of the United States and even Canada.
Watching this miniseries back then,struck a strong chord in me about how a woman can be determined and tenacious in her pursuit of whatever she wants for the greater good of all. I fell in love with the character of Cicely,and even fantasized about playing that role someday!
A woman called Moses,was a story of deliverance from Slavery and the menace of Segregation and Oppression.Typical of the story of Moses,the deliverer of the Children of Israel.I believe thats why the TV series was called,A Woman Called Moses.
