The Northampton Film Festival and All Hamptons Read Present:

JOSIAH

Q&A and Book Signing with Director Jared A. Brock to follow film.

Josiah Henson (1789-1883) spent 41 years as a slave. He was a dynamic, driven man

with unyielding principles who overcame incredible odds to escape his cruel masters and

improve the lives of hundreds of freed people throughout his long life. Though immortalized by

Harriet Beecher Stowe in her seminal, society-changing novel Uncle Tom's Cabin and

catapulted to international fame in 1852, his story has been largely lost to history. Until now.

Including interviews with leading experts and Henson descendants, JOSIAH is an unmissable

documentary about one of history’s greatest lost figures. Narrated by Danny Glover.
