Narrated by Emmy Award-Winning “Desperate Housewives” star Alfre Woodard, Sweet Blackberry’s debut DVD, The Journey of Henry Box Brown, tells the true story of slave Henry Box Brown, a man who mailed himself in a wooden box from a plantation in Richmond, Virginia to freedom in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
