Last night, I saw a newly released movie that is, at once, searingly traumatizing and powerfully uplifting. I commend to everyone "Harriet," the story of the hardships and successes of a slave in Maryland who became an iconic and courageous liberator known as "Moses" for her often-miraculous success in helping seventy others enslaved in southern states reach freedom in the North and Canada.

Indeed, a deeply moving subtext of the film is its portrayal of Harriet Tubman’s unshakable faith in God, whose grace repeatedly informed and often transformed her missions of mercy.

At a time when decades of steady improvement in race-relations in America have been seriously set back by politicians, provocateurs and media outlets, this film serves as a reminder of how far we have come — and of the imperative need to enlist divine providence to rise above our present adversities.
