My Story: A Picture of Freedom is a tale based on the real-life memoirs of Clotee Henley, a young slave who helped over 150 slaves escape to freedom via the Underground Railroad. It's 1859 and Clotee is a slave in a Virginia plantation.

It's illegal for slaves to read and write, but Clotee is teaching herself in secret. 'Freedom' is just another word she's learned to write. Then she finds out about the Underground Railroad, a network of people who help runaway slaves, and discovers that freedom is more than just a word... Experience history first-hand with My Story in this all-new look!
