From the critics
Coarse Language: If you ever been in the SOUTHERN UNITED STATES. It was always been known that White People always called Black People (not by their name), but as SLAVES during that time.
Violence: There is physical violence as well as allusions to abuse through scars shown upon people's bodies. There are a few deaths as well. Gore and blood are present, but minimal.

Some quotes in IMDb, thanks to its contributors. These two are not posted:
I reasoned that there was one or two things I had a right to. Liberty or death. If I couldn't have one, I'd have the other.
Harriet: Well, God showed me... to prepare me, I guess. But when it happened, it hurt so bad, worse than any beating, worse than the hole in my head. Hole in my head just... made God's voice more clear.
(Man wrote down silently: possible brain damage.)
As memorable are the title cards on screen:
Harriet Tubman was the most famous conductor on the Underground Railroad, leading over 70 slaves to freedom.
During the Civil War, Harriet became a spy for the Union Army.
She led 150 black soldiers in the Combahee River Raid, freeing over 750 slaves.
Harriet remains one of the few women in U.S. history to lead an armed expedition.
She later remarried and dedicated her life to helping freed slaves, the elderly and Women's Suffrage.
She died surrounded by loved ones on March 10. 1913 of approximately 91 years of age.
Her last words were, "I go to prepare a place for you."
