Lecture: Slave Experience and the Underground Railroad

Join Underground Railroad enthusiast Jerry Bennett as he shares his maps, songs, books, handouts, stories and visual aids in this presentation celebrating Black History Month and the 200th anniversary of the birth of Frederick Douglass on February 14.
