JOSIAH HENSON

He held numerous titles including preacher, businessman, statesman, educator, Canadian soldier, entrepreneur and author. But before that, he was a slave.For forty horrific years of enslavement Josiah persevered, guided by integrity and determination, before achieving freedom in Canada. Faced with betrayal, Josiah escaped with his wife and four children, at times carrying them on his broken shoulders for miles. His freedom realized, Josiah continued to defy adversity and went on to accomplish the unimaginable.Morally brave and resilient, Josiah is a role model who transcends time and speaks across generations. 'Josiah' is a beacon of hope in a time when the world could use some light.
