In this episode of Discovery Road, we're introduced to the Blackham family as they unravel their own past in England.

In central Utah’s Sanpete Valley Discovery Road trains the camera lens on Blackham family reunions and gatherings. Going back several generations the family finds out how brutal work was in the cotton mill factories. The harsh history lesson gives this family story a powerful perspective. Interviews in England, artifacts from a century ago and historic photos tell the story of the Blackham family.
