Freedom River


Freedom River

FREEDOM RIVER highlights the life of John Parker, an ex-slave (he bought his freedom) living in Kentucky who helped other African Americans escape slavery via the Underground Railroad and cross the Ohio River to freedom. Dramatic paintings, many scenes lit by pearly moonlight, add something special to this story inspired by actual events.
