Bridget Biddy Mason (1818-1891) was born enslaved in Mississippi. In 1848, Mason walked 1,700 miles behind a 300-wagon caravan. During that time, Mason also took care of her three young daughters. Her last owner Robert Smith moved his family to California, despite slavery being illegal in the state. Bridget was soon urged to legally contest her slave status. After spending five years enslaved in California, Mason challenged Smith for her freedom until the L.A. District Judge Benjamin Hayes approved Mason’s appeal. After gaining freedom, Mason became one of the first notable citizens and landowners in Los Angeles in the 1850s and 1860s. She organized the oldest African American Church in the city in 1872. Mason used her wealth to become a philanthropist. She donated to many charities, fed and sheltered the poor, and visited prisoners.
