World Premiere of Josiah Henson to benefit LLF
Posted on 08/29/2019

The LLF is pleased to be associated with the triumphant performance of Josiah Henson: From Slave to Saviour an epic tale of courage and bravery, for one night only, Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at the Grand Theatre.

The play tells the improbable story of Josiah Henson - a dynamic, driven man with exceptional intelligence and unyielding principles, who overcame incredible odds to escape from slavery and improve the lives of hundreds of freedmen through his long life. 

This high-energy one-man show starring Cassel Miles features dance, movement and drama to tell the story of Josiah, a man who suffered abuse, degradation and betrayal but never lost his humanity. 

Written and directed by Charles Robertson, From Slave to Saviour is not only a sobering reminder of the fate of the slaves in the US, but a story of hope and determination. 

Miles and Robertson hope that the triumphant life story of this quintessential hero Josiah Henson will inspire others, young and old, as it has touched and inspired them.
