Underground Railroad Along the Hudson River

February 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Often remembered as being characterized by tunnels, dark of night escapes, coded language and hidey-holes, the Underground Railroad was far more extensive and complex than these ideas have led us to believe.  In the midst of significant pro-slavery sentiment, New York State was home to many abolitionists working to abolish the institution of slavery in our state and nation and it was visited by many who had escaped enslavement and sought a life of freedom. Join with the Stewarts as they share a new interpretation of a very old story and explain the various initiatives in which Underground Railroad History Project of the Capital Region, Inc. is engaged as it works to connect the public with this local history and its relevancy for us today.
