StoryCorps Shorts: Detective Simmons
Short Film | 07/26/2018 | 1 Mins

Every family has a figure who captures the imagination of future generations of storytellers. For Camaran Henson, that figure is his grandfather, a former police detective he was convinced was immortal, like a superhero.

Though his grandfather didn’t prove to be immortal, Camaran still considers him worthy of his legendary status–and a deserving focal point of continued storytelling. He came to StoryCorps to remember “Detective Simmons”.
