Read information about the authorHenry Brown was a 19th century Virginia slave who escaped to freedom by arranging to have himself mailed to Philadelphia abolitionists in a wooden crate.
As a free man, Brown lectured across New England on the evils of slavery and participated in the publication of the Narrative of Henry Box Brown (1849). In 1850, a moving panorama, Henry Box Brown's Mirror of Slavery, opened in Boston.
That same year, Brown, worried that he might be re-enslaved, moved to England, where he re-married, lectured, presented his panorama, and performed as a hypnotist.
In 1875, he returned to the United States with his wife and daughter Annie and performed as a magician.
The date and location of his death are unknown. A newspaper reports a February 26, 1889 performance by Henry Box Brown at Brantford, Ontario. This is the last known record of Brown.
