A Legacy in the Valley

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
