Date: February 4, 2018
Description: Regina Mason, international speaker, author, playwright, and producer, will be at the Litchfield Historical Society for a screening of her award-winning documentary, “Gina’s Journey: The Search for William Grimes.” The film follows Ms. Mason’s path to historical locations and key points of interests as she traces the steps of her ancestor, William Grimes, who traveled along the Underground Railroad to freedom and in 1825 authored the first fugitive slave narrative in U.S. history. The film conveys not only Ms. Mason’s long road to uncover her past, but also the unimaginable conditions that faced William Grimes as he struggled to free himself from slavery.

The screening and speaking event will be held Sunday, February 4. Check back soon for time and location details.
