The Lewis & Clark Expedition was a pivotal moment in American history. But the story of York, a slave to William Clark from boyhood and comrade on this journey, has been obscured by omission and stereotype. Searching for York paints a portrait of this unofficial member of the Corps of Discovery as it discusses the ways in which history is written.

Our board member, Tom Wilson, writes: “I was honored to portray William Clark, pick a lot of the cast and scene locations, and act as one of the historical consultants. I had producers Beth Harrington and Ron Craig contact Joe Bradford, who was selected to portray York—an amazing man in many regards and great friend.”
