The Life of Josiah Henson
April 4 @ 8:30 pm
Peerless Rockville welcomes Jamie Ferguson Kuhns, senior historian for Montgomery Parks, as she presents on her newly published book Sharp Flashes of Lightning Come from Black Clouds: The Life of Josiah Henson. This in-depth biography draws a comprehensive portrait of Reverend Henson as a real person and the 19th-century world in which he lived. It does not shy away from the details of slavery on a Maryland plantation – as told in Henson’s own voice.
