Lunch and Learn: How the Underground Railroad Transformed Ohio and America In-Person

The Underground Railroad has secured its place in American historical memory as a chapter of our history of which we are justifiably proud. But it’s just as important that we fully understand what we’re remembering and celebrating. The real story of the famed network to freedom long encased in mythology and subject to misunderstanding centers on the generally uncredited roles of the African Americans who made seemingly impossible escapes look easy and defied the defenders of slavery North and South by settling on the frontline of freedom. No place in America was more important to their struggle than Ohio, whose history is integrally intertwined with this iconic movement.
