Cynthia Erivo: At Home with Oprah Winfrey

Grammy-, Emmy- and Tony-winning actress Cynthia Erivo discusses her starring role in the upcoming film “Harriet.” “Harriet” is the first feature film to tell the true story of one of the most iconic women in American history, Harriet Tubman. Harriet Tubman went from being a runaway slave to becoming one of the most revered abolitionists of her time, guiding more than 70 slaves to freedom on the Underground Railroad. Cynthia addresses the backlash on social media surrounding the fact that she is British, playing a beloved, African-American hero. Cynthia also talks about her star-making role as Celie in the Tony-Award winning Broadway revival of “The Color Purple.”
