The Road to Dawn: Josiah Henson and the Story That Sparked the Civil War

Josiah Henson overcame incredible odds to escape from slavery, and improved the lives of hundreds of freedmen throughout his long life. He found international fame as the real “Uncle Tom” in the novel that fueled the abolitionist movement and ignited the Civil War. Join us on Josiah Henson’s birthday in celebrating his powerful story with author Jared Brock. Brock’s sweeping biography immortalizes Henson in an epic tale of courage and bravery in the face of unimaginable trials. Author Jared Brock has also made a short documentary called JOSIAH (Narrated by actor and activist Danny Glover), which will be screened at this event, followed by Q&A and a book signing with Jared.
