Cynthia Erivo sits with Ebro in the Morning to discuss the backlash over her being casted to play Harriet Tubman in her new film. The backlash comes from her origins as a British accident with a Nigerian background.

She details her experiences as a black woman growing up in Britain, her feelings on foreign actors playing American roles, but that’s not all.

She discussed the possibility of her becoming the youngest EGOT winner ever, and her next role as Aretha Franklin in an upcoming biopic.

‘Harriet’ is in theaters today.
