Focus Features, the studio behind Harriet, will celebrate Black History Month by offering free screenings of the film.

In a press release Friday, the company announced it’s teaming up with Regal Cinemas to host screenings at 50 theaters across the country on Tuesday, Feb. 4, and Tuesday, Feb. 11.

Harriet depicts the life of Harriet Tubman, who was born a slave in Maryland and escaped to freedom. Over her lifetime, Tubman helped hundreds of other enslaved African Americans reach freedom in the North via the Underground Railroad.
