A daring vision---an unbelievable plan--a successful escape: the flight from a life as a Virginia slave to seek his family already in the North. That was the motivation for Henry Brown to dare to slip undetected by hiding in a wooden box traveling to Philadelphia. From that time on, he was known as Henry "Box" Brown. Brown joined other abolitionists from Philadelphia to rally the public against the evils of slavery.
Fearing that his master's slave catchers could find and return him to Virginia, he boarded a ship bound for England. His anti-slavery work continued there until he finally returned to the US.
The public is invited to learn more about Mr. Brown on Sunday, September 20th from 2-4 at the restored, one-room former school at 2804 West Enon Road, Xenia. The event is free, with donations encouraged. Bringing lawn chairs will be helpful. Parking is available at the school and Greene County Career Center. XASRC will provide a large van to shuttle visitors to and from GCCC. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held at GCCC.
Other participants in this special Constitution Day celebration will be President and Mrs. Lincoln, Sons of Union Veterans, Bugler Alan Howey and the combined voices of Xenia Westminster and Memorial Choirs.
