This combination of 2012 and circa 1860-1875 photos shows hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons in New York and abolitionist Harriet Tubman. In 2013, Simmons apologized for posting a parody video of Tubman having sex with her white slave master as someone films it so the abolitionist can bribe her boss. Appearing on his All Def Digital YouTube channel, Simmons said he removed it after a call from the NAACP. (AP Photo/Evan Agostini, Library of Congress)
