Josiah is a short documentary film about an enslaved man, Josiah Henson, who overcame incredible odds and escaped from the U. S. to Ontario in 1830. His life inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe to write the 1852 blockbuster novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, but his real-life story has been largely forgotten by history. The documentary film retraces Josiah Henson’s harrowing journey from slavery in Maryland and Kentucky to freedom in Canada.
Narrated by Danny Glover the film includes interviews with leading experts and Henson’s living descendants. Jared A. Brock is the director of the documentary and author of a definitive biography on Josiah Henson titled The Road to Dawn. So who was Uncle Tom and what does it have to do with us today? There will a discussion after the film led by civil rights freedom walker, Wally Roberts and T. W. Wood Gallery Education Director, Binta Colley.
