ABOUT SEED OF THE FREE
This is a story about a mother’s love for her son. A love that transcended racial and social boundaries, overcame fear, and faced a justice system that was stacked against her. Belle had faced a lot of hardships on her life, but nothing had prepared her for finding out her six year old son had been illegally sold South just months before New York emancipation was to go into effect. The courage she embraced to face the judge and jury ignored the spark for her to become “the seed of the free”.
