Tiny’s Emancipation

Tiny’s Emancipation

Tiny Mason has nothing of her own

even her last name belongs to her master.

In June of 1865, the Texas slaves hear rumors that the war

is over and that they will soon be free. Tiny, impatient for freedom, sneaks away

from the Mason Plantation in the back of a wagon bound for Galveston.

In that city, she hears United States Major General Granger read the proclamation

that the slaves are free–an announcement made on June 19, 1865.

Tiny joins the spontaneous celebration of her release from slavery,

but her former owner, Miz Mason, tries to prevent the young girl from living a free life
