Journey to Freedom: The Underground Railroad and Abolitionists
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
This program will put you in the shoes of an Abolitionist, opposing the horrific practice of slavery. The Abolitionists helped slaves who were trying to escape to freedom through the network known as the Underground Railroad. People aiding in the escape efforts were known as conductors. They would take in those who needed help along the way and provided food and shelter for the fugitives.
The workshop will teach audiences about the different groups that helped fight slavery in Queens, as well as how Queens County played a role in the nation’s long path to establishing the 13th Amendment. Students will collaborate to decide how to tackle the challenges faced by the pioneers and draw out inspirations from a broader range of historic figures.
143-35 37th Avenue, Kingsland Homestead
