The mother of Rev. Daniel W. Shaw [1886-89] is featured in the film “Twelve Years A Slave”. Mistress Harriet Shaw is played by Alfie Woodard.   Events took place in the Louisiana Bayou country.

Woodard describes the role as being that of “concubine” to a slave owner.   Harriet Shaw  bore several children while paired with this slave owner. They lived on a plantation neighboring that of our protagonist.

Dan Shaw attended schools sponsored by  Methodists before coming to attend the then Baldwin College in Berea,Ohio  He moved to Oberlin as a divinity student while serving as pastor of this church beginning in 1886.  After ,leaving town , he served churches in other states.

Severe illness brought him back to Oberlin where he passed away in 1914.
