Event Details

Janice the Griot tells stories of love, freedom and sacrifice through the eyes of those who would be free. Sponsored by Friends of the Library, Montgomery County.

There are two mistakes slave owners made. They underestimated the intelligence of the people they enslaved and the determination of a person to be free. Hidden codes, quilts, messages in song are just some of the inventive methods used to find a way to freedom. Janice the Griot tells of these historic and courageous tales of freedom.
