Slavery

The Underground Railroad: Road to Freedom exhibit, the Gallery’s second permanent installation focuses on the trans Atlantic slave trade and the efforts of thousands of black men and women who sought to escape slavery.

It features the extraordinary network established by free blacks and “liberty loving” men and women who helped them on their road to freedom. The collection includes rare artifacts, posters, documents, music, films and books.

To educate, promote cultural understanding, and respect human dignity.
