Reactions to the news that the Biden Administration was restarting efforts to put abolitionist and freedom fighter Harriet Tubman on the front of the $20 bill were very mixed. 

As Blavity previously reportedWhite House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Monday that the Treasury Department would be working to put Tubman on the bill as a continuation of the plan started in 2016 by former President Barack Obama.

But the response now was a bit different than it was back then, with some questioning whether this should be the priority right now for a government facing a cascading series of crises, an impeachment hearing next week and a mismanaged COVID-19 vaccine rollout.

Others asked whether it was appropriate to put Tubman, a former slave, on currency considering she was treated like currency before she freed herself and others from chattel slavery. 

But the NAACP loved the idea and tweeted out their excitement with a reference to a recent viral video.

The responses were far from positive, to say the least.
