Although Kasi Lemmons’ latest film, Harriet, bested industry expectations with a $12 million opening and has received a nearly 100 percent audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes, not everyone is pleased with the film. Some of those cynics have been extremely vocal. Antonio Moore is one of them. In his November 6 video post on theGrio, the Los Angeles-based attorney and Emmy-nominated producer of the Al Jazeera documentary, Freeway: Crack in the System describes Harriet, the first ever big screen film about Harriet Tubman’s life, as being “very dangerous.” For Moore, this danger largely derives from “how it mischaracterized the narrative of slavery and the role of Black men.” What’s most egregious to Moore is the character of Bigger Long, a Black slave tracker on Tubman’s trail played by Omar Dorsey, most well-known as Hollywood from Queen Sugar, fictionalized for the film.
