Yep, that's right. The New York Times has the exciting news:

The Treasury Department will announce on Wednesday afternoon that Harriet Tubman, an African-American who ferried thousands of slaves to freedom, will replace the slaveholding Andrew Jackson on the center of a new $20 note, according to a Treasury official, while newly popular Alexander Hamilton will remain on the face of the $10 bill.

Other depictions of women and civil rights leaders will also be part of new currency designs.

The new designs, from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, would be made public in 2020 in time for the centennial of woman’s suffrage and the 19th Amendment to the Constitution. None of the bills, including a new $5 note, would reach circulation until the next decade.

NPR explains the significance of the $20:

An unofficial contest by the activist group Women on 20s gave the nod to Harriet Tubman to take Jackson's place on the $20 bill. The campaign then sent a petition to President Obama.

As we reported:

"We'll note that Tubman's appearance on the $20 bill would have a special historical resonance: That's the same amount she eventually received from the U.S. government as her monthly pension for her service as a nurse, scout, cook and spy during the Civil War, as well as for her status as the widow of a veteran."

But Jackson was just one of many slaveholding U.S. presidents, some of who are still featured on our currency: George Washington on the $1 bill and quarter, Thomas Jefferson on the $2 bill and nickel, and Ulysess S. Grant on the $50 bill.
