Regina Mason

Join acclaimed author and speaker Regina Mason as she shares the story of her search for her great-great-great-grandfather, William Grimes, and her startling discovery that he had written the first American autobiography of a runaway slave. His story ignited an essential American literary genre, but is largely forgotten today. His story, and her search to uncover it, are retold in a new film, Gina’s Journey: The Search for William Grimes. In this reenactment documentary that bridges two centuries, both Mason and her forebear Grimes defy the odds of their times to tell their stories.
