“Arctic Autograph” The Story of Matthew Henson

The Story of Matthew Henson
Destination Freedom of 2009 will mark the 100th anniversary of the trip to the North Pole with the radio drama “Arctic Autograph” The Story of Matthew Henson. When Robert F. Peary claimed discovery of the North Pole on April 6, 1909, the only other American to stand beside him was a Black man, Matthew A. Henson. A native of Charles County, Maryland, Henson accompanied Peary on eight Arctic journeys between 1891 and 1909. His skill in interpreting the language of the North Greenland Eskimos, in building boats and repairing sledges and in driving dog teams was essential to the ultimate success of the admiral, who wrote, “I can't get along without him.” Yet Henson was for the most part ignored, even by Peary, after that historic expedition. The play will feature donnie l. betts as Henson, Kurt Soderstrom (Shadow Theatre) as Peary, plus Lea Chapman (Ragtime), Leonard Barrett (Ragtime) and Laurel Harris
