Capital District Humanist Society at The Myers Residence
October 3, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Members of The Capital District Humanist Society will join with Paul and Mary Liz Stewart for an in-person two hour tour experience at The Stephen and Harriet Myers Residence to learn about the involvement of Albany’s Black activists in the Underground Railroad movement and the contemporary relevance of that activism with us today.
Tour Experience Description – ‘Meet’ local Black Abolitionists and Freedom Seekers whose voices have been reclaimed as part of the Underground Railroad narrative. Enjoy a hands-on experience with period artifacts. Analyze period documents which relate an account different from the standard Underground Railroad narrative. Step back in time with period attire. Explore how the Underground Railroad movement relates to our justice concerns for today and how many of the issues faced by abolitionists and freedom seekers are still with us today.
