[About the Great Lives biography series.]

Clara Brown was born a slave in Virginia around 1800.She endured separation and loss as her husband and children were sold away. In 1856, the slave owner died and Clara was granted freedom papers.

In 1859, Clara earned her passage west to Colorado by cooking and doing laundry for the wagon train. She worked first as a cook in Denver and then started a successful laundry business in Central City. As she gained financial security, Clara began to search for her family, and in the process helped newly freed slaves come to Colorado.

As "Aunt" Clara Brown's profits in mines and real estate grew, she became more charitable, never turning away anyone in need.
