Madman or MartyrMadman or Martyr, about abolitionist John Brown, has plenty of ties to Detroit, one of the central stations of the Underground Railroad. The film, by metro Detroit filmmaker Luke Jaden, explores Brown’s life and the history of abolition in Detroit during the 1830s, ’40s, and ’50s. Brown and the ‘Railroad’ had an immense and profound influence upon the city, and in 1859, just days before Brown’s raid on Harper’s Ferry, the abolitionist transported 11 slaves to the Railroad’s Detroit hub.
The film weaves first-hand accounts, archival images, expert insights and anecdotes, and first-person accounts into a portrait of an angry, righteous man dedicated to ending the brutality of slavery. It illustrates how Brown’s almost-maniacal religious fervor and tendency toward violence ultimately prevented him from ending slavery, though his efforts helped to polarize Americans’ views, arguably a flashpoint for the start of The Civil War.
