Harriet Tubman's Niece's Letter (Judith G. Bryant)
 "Your disgusting portrayal of one of America's most beloved heroines is simply inexplicable.Unforgivable. And you thought this was funny? No excuses possible. Your insolent apologies are embarrassing. 
For all your millions, you are worth zero to me. 
Please, don't use any of them in connection with her name ever again."
