Over the last year, I have been studying my mother’s family history. My great grandfather was a “freedman”. This is someone who was freed from plantation life before slavery ended. He eventually settled in Texas in 1860 and bought land. The statement he made after the purchase was, “We’re not running anymore.” There is a period in his life where we can’t figure out where he was…some say he was hiding, Others say he went back to a plantation. The following story is similar to his….a movie you may want to see.
