Fanny Kemble, once the preeminent English Shakespearean ingenue (and a member of the legendary Kemble/Siddons theatrical family), shares her journey from being the toast of London society and a popular essayist to the startling revelation that her new Philadelphia husband had a secret - his family in Georgia owned one of the largest population of slaves in America. Her book, "Journal of a Residence on a Georgian Plantation in 1838-1839," galvanized her as a reformer and abolitionist. Written by Anne Ludlum; Directed by John Contini; with Erin Kelley*
