Description
Six years before the onset of the Civil War, two courageous figures—one a free white man and one an enslaved black woman—risked personal liberty to ensure each other's freedom in an explosive episode that captured the attention of a nation on the brink of cataclysmic change. In this deeply researched account of the rescue of the slave Jane Johnson by the Philadelphia Quaker and fervent abolitionist Passmore Williamson—including the federal court case that followed and Johnson's selfless efforts to free the jailed Williamson—veteran journalist Nat Brandt and Emmy-winning filmmaker Yanna Kroyt Brandt capture the heroism and humanity at the heart of this important moment in American history.
