Lunch and Learn: Heroes of the Underground Railroad

Registration not required, but encouraged. Please register for the event on Eventbrite here.

Dr. Jenny Masur will discuss her latest book, Heroes of the Underground Railroad around Washington DC, sharing stories of nine Maryland freedom seekers originating from a variety of counties and settling in varied destinations in the Northeast and abroad. In some ways the experiences of these men and women fit stereotypes of the Underground Railroad—Vigilance Committees, Quakers, crossing into Pennsylvania, heading to the north. However, their stories are unexpected in the key interventions of fellow African Americans, and in the necessity of repeated flight forcing them to rebuild their lives more than once.  Hope you will join us for this important event.

ASL interpretation will be available for attendees.

Presented in partnership with The Maryland State Archives and The Maryland Four Centuries Project.
