Remember that unofficial campaign to redesign the $20 bill — this time by ditching the dead prez and replacing his mug with a woman’s? More than 100,000 people voted that that woman should be Harriet Tubman and we were here for all of that. Only problem? That campaign wasn’t actually backed by the government, so the vote didn’t really mean anything official was going to happen.
Yesterday, the Treasury Department announced that they will most definitely be redesigning some cash, but instead of the $20 bill, which was just updated in 2003, they’ll be revamping the $10 bill and it will come out in 2020. And the face on that fetty will be a woman’s! We’re pushing for a Black woman, such as Harriet Tubman, Septima Poinsette Clark, Sojourner Truth, Ella Baker, Ida B. Wells-Barnett, Coretta Scott King, Pauli Murray, or Rosa Parks.
