Chariot on the Mountain
Based on little-known true events, this astonishing account from Emmy and Peabody Award-winning journalist Jack Ford vividly recreates the story of a slave named Kitty. Her treacherous journey to freedom begins with the help of the Underground Railroad and unexpected allies. When she is brutally kidnapped back into slavery, Kitty does not give up on her quest to be free. Against all odds, she attempts to find justice in a sensational trial in a small Virginia courtroom. Kitty's unforgettable story is a testament to determination, friendship, and courage.
