Russell Simmons is Working With Harriet Tubman’s Family on Documentary

And the plot thickens.

Russell Simmons is still in damage control mode over the Harriet Tubman sex tape that was released on his ADD Youtube Channel. Simmons recently sat down to talk about the fallout. In it, he talks about everything from how it "broke his heart" to hear that black women were so disturbed by the video to what it might take for Spike Lee to "make a decent movie."

But Simmons dropped an even bigger bombshell on Twitter when he wrote that he’s been speaking with Tubman’s direct descendants, who have not only accepted his apology but reportedly want to work with Simmons to develop a documentary on Tubman’s life.
