Great news that Harriet Tubman will be the face of the new $20 bill but she isn’t the only African American or woman to get historic face time on U.S. currency.

In addition to Tubman landing the $20 bill, Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew also announced today that Sojourner Truth, Marian Anderson and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. will be added to bills as well.

The back of the new $10 bill (with Alexander Hamilton still on the front) will include an image of the historic march for suffrage that ended on the steps of the Treasury Department and honor the leaders of the suffrage movement—Sojourner Truth, Lucretia Mott, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Alice Paul.

 The other side of the $5 bill, still fronted by President Lincoln, will honor events at the Lincoln Memorial that helped to shape our history and our democracy and prominent individuals involved in those events, including Marian Anderson, Eleanor Roosevelt and Martin Luther King Jr.
