Jaden wrote, produced and directed the work that traces the development through a web of secrets that painted the abolitionist movement in Detroit as well as the emergence of the radical abolitionist John Brown. A mere few months before Brown’s raid on Harpers Ferry, Va., Brown transported 11 slaves to Detroit, a hub of the Underground Railroad and discussed his Subterranean Pass Plan with Frederick Douglass and other local Detroit Abolitionists.
