Unlikely Conductors: Native Americans and the Underground Railroad
February 9, 2022
February 9 @6PM online via Zoom, join Forge Project Director of Education Heather Bruegl for Unlikely Conductors: Native Americans and the Underground Railroad.
We learn in history class that the Underground Railroad was extremely instrumental is aiding enslaved Africans escaping captivity and searching for freedom. What we always don't learn about is the role that Native Americans, who sometimes were enslaved themselves, played in helping those people get to freedom. Learn about the important role that tribes played in assisting others in the Underground Railroad.
