Freed by her master at age 54, Clara Brown embarked on a 30 year journey in search of her husband and children who were sold to different slave owners. Participants will hear about her quest west to St Louis, and then to the Rocky Mountains, where she fostered settlements and built schools and churches, but never lost hope in finding her family.

Join us as Cultural Preservationist Angela DaSilva brings history alive during a historical presentation on slavery. Angela will present from a first person perspective, dressed in a traditional period outfit, to relate what slave life was like in the mid 19th Century.
