The Road to Freedom: From Maryland Slavery to Queen Victoria's Court

Saturday, February 15, 2020

All Ages

Author Edna Troiano, Ph.D., follows the life of Josiah Henson from his birth into slavery in Charles County, Maryland, to his flight to freedom in Canada, to trips along the Underground Railroad to free others, and culminating with his interview with Harriet Beecher Stowe. This led to her inspiration for Uncle Tom’s Cabin and ultimately to Henson’s invitation to meet the Queen of England.
