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
