"Voices of the Underground Railroad" highlights the African-American experience, and invites everyone to contemplate and share their personal family journey.
Basement Program Room

Celebrate the human drive we all possess to simply "be."  Hear the voices of those who have come and gone before us.  Meet people who blazed the path to freedom through fearless tenacity.  Sojourn with a young man propelled by the desire to make his own way in the world and, with the help of the Underground Railroad, gets to freedom.  He survives the capture, the middle passage and the auction block!  We become a part of--and feel the heartbeat and urgency of--the Underground Railroad. 

Experience,      Feel,        Celebrate  . . .        History.
