HAMPTON, Va. – The Hampton University Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications in partnership with the Virginia Air and Space Museum Center plans to show an advanced screening and panel discussion of the new film ‘Harriet’.

The university will be showing the movie for free at the Virginia Air and Space Center, located at 600 Settlers Landing Road, from 6-9 p.m., on October 30.

There is limited space available, so spots to view the movie are first come, first served.

‘Harriet’ doesn’t hit theaters nationwide until Friday.

Following the viewing of ‘Harriet’, there will be a discussion on the film.

“Based on the thrilling and inspirational life of an iconic American freedom fighter, ‘Harriet’ tells the extraordinary tale of Harriet Tubman’s escape from slavery and transformation into one of America’s greatest heroes. Her courage, ingenuity, and tenacity freed hundreds of slaves and changed the course of history,” said Hampton University in its release to News 3.
