JOSIAH HENSON- AN INSPIRATION TO HARRIET BEECHER STOWE

At the Suffield Senior Center, 145 Bridge Street

On Thursday, May 17 at 7:00 p.m., the Kent Memorial Library will be showing Josiah, a documentary film on Josiah Henson’s harrowing journey from slavery to freedom in Canada.  Josiah rose to become a preacher and orator who used his freedom to uplift his fellow men.  The free program will take place at the Suffield Senior Center, 145 Bridge Street.  A soon-to-be-published biography of Josiah, entitled THE ROAD TO DAWN:  Josiah Henson and the Story That Sparked the Civil War by the filmmaker, Jared A. Brock will be available for purchase and signing.

Josiah Henson (1789-1883) spent 41 years as a slave.  He overcame incredible odds to escape his cruel masters.  Though immortalized by Harriet Beecher Stowe in her seminal novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin and catapulted to international fame in 1852, his story has been largely lost to history.  Until now.  With both the book and the film, Brock has created a comprehensive portrait that restores Josiah to his rightful place in history.
