Former slave to be face of US $20 bill

A former slave who helped many others to escape is to replace a slave owner as the face of the US $20 bill.

Harriet Tubman will be the first African-American to feature on paper currency in the US and will replace former slave owning president Andrew Jackson, though he will remain on the reverse of the note.
