Public Hearing Thursday on Josiah Henson Park

The park celebrates the life of Josiah Henson, a wonderfully talented writer and orator, born into slavery, whose early life was captured by Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” The park also chronicles the life of African-Americans in early Montgomery County.
