Helen Katherine Mason

Bryant Monteilh grew up in Phoenix and fondly remembers spending time with his grandmother, Helen Katherine Mason, founder of the Black Theatre Troupe. Bryant has produced a new documentary, A Legacy in the Valley, that highlights Helen's contributions and traces the family's lineage back to Helen's maternal great grandmother, Mary Green, a former slave who travelled from Union County, Arkansas, to the Arizona Territory in 1868
