New films highlight the ongoing relevance of Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass

Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass are the latest subjects of a filmmaker long-engaged in telling the contributions and challenges of African Americans. Two new PBS documentaries focus on the 19th-century giants who helped lead the fight to end slavery in America. Jeffrey Brown sat down with filmmaker Stanley Nelson for our arts and culture series, “CANVAS.”
