About this show

Set in 1824, decades before the Emancipation Proclamation, Free Man of Color looks back at actual historical events and figures, including Ohio University's president, Robert Wilson, an avowed abolitionist, who has big plans for Newton, and Wilson's wife who is more skeptical. As a woman, she is not permitted to study at the college. And Templeton, unexpectedly, has ideas of his own about the future.
