As a successful former slave, Clara Brown used her money to help other freed slaves get a new start in life. In 1859 Clara bought her own freedom and headed west to Colorado to find her daughter, who was sold when she was just a little girl. Clara didn’t find her daughter there, but she did get rich. The people she helped became her family, and she became known as “Aunt” Clara Brown.
