Harriet Tubman, l’héroïne noire abolitionniste en effigie sur le billet de 20 dollars US

(FILES) This file photo taken on April 29, 2015 shows an image provided by the "Women On 20's" organization festuring abolitionist Harriet Tubman on the US twenty dollar bill.  
Celebrated former US slave Harriet Tubman will replace President Andrew Jackson on the $20 banknote, the first time an African-American has been featured on US money, a Treasury official said April 20, 2016. The decision came after the Treasury came under pressure to put a woman on a different banknote soon to be revised, the $10 bill that features the first Treasury secretary Alexander Hamilton.
