Missing from History: Women of the Underground Railroad
Wednesday, August 16 at 3:00pm-7:00pm
Music, Poetry, Food, Art, Fun & Truth
Inspired by the triumphant story of his own family's journey to freedom, Teajai Travis, a 6th generation descendant of Black Refugees who fled chattel slavery in the USA to settle on the invaded and colonized land known today as Canada, wants to learn and share the forgotten stories of the women of The Underground Railroad.
Mary Miles Bibb (1820-1877) was a great Black Revolutionary who was dedicated in abolishing slavery and fighting for the equitable rights of oppressed people. She was a brilliant writer, educator, artist, entrepreneur, and activist, so why is she barely remembered by history?
This event is free to the public.
