Dighton Public Library presents Sailing to Freedom: Maritime Dimensions of the Underground Railroad

Saturday, February 17, 2024

Join Dr. Timothy Walker of UMASS Dartmouth for a program featuring the Underground Railroad. While stories of the Underground Railroad have focused almost exclusively on overland escape routes from the antebellum South, this talk will delve into our understanding of how freedom was achieved by sea and what the journey looked like for many African Americans. The presentation will be held at the Old Town Hall and is free of charge to attend. No registration required.
