New Ten Dollar Bill


This past week, a town hall meeting was held as Wesleyan Methodist Chapel in regard to the redesigning of the ten dollar bill with the U.S treasurer, Rosie Rios. There were many iconic women mentioned as possible faces for the new bill, but the most discussed candidates were Harriet Tubman and Susan B. Anthony. Tubman, a member of the Underground Railroad, made thirteen trips to guide slaves to freedom. She was also a union spy and an activist for anti-slavery and humanitarianism. Anthony, a feminist who fought desperately for women’s rights, also worked diligently for the anti-slavery and women’s suffrage movements. The candidate that is chosen will be the first woman on an American bill in United States history. The meeting hasn’t fully decided on a candidate for the bill, but a decision will be made in the near future. The redesign should be done around 2020, and will be circulating through the country after about two years.
