A fun short film to start your day titled John Henry and The Railroad - a film from the artisans at Whitestone Motion Pictures.
This is the tale of John Henry. The one from the railroad story. Legend goes that John Henry was a freed slave. John took his only son out looking for work. He was out to make a new life for himself. He heard somethin' about railroad work needing to be done. So that's where he went. But trouble was just around the bend.
We can toss it into the slave-western-narrative film soup pot.
