Summary
A dynamic, driven man of intelligence and unyielding principles, Josiah Henson overcame incredible odds to escape with his family from forty-one years in bondage. He then worked to improve the lives of hundreds of freedmen throughout his long life. Henson found international fame--including visits to Windsor Castle and the White House--as the real "Uncle Tom" of the novel that fueled the abolitionist movement and ignited the Civil War. After being all but lost to history for over a century, The Road to Dawn tells his incredible story
