Book Talk: "Heroes of the Underground Railroad Around D.C."

Jenny Masur, author

Many of the unsung heroes of the Underground Railroad lived and worked in Washington, D.C. Enslaved people engineered escapes, individually and in groups, and with and without the assistance of an organized network. Some ended up back in slavery or in jail, but others escaped to freedom. Join as anthropologist and author Jenny Masur tells their stories recorded in her book Heroes of the Underground Railroad Around D.C. After the presentation, there will be time for discussion and debate.
