Sailing to Freedom: Black History Month Presentation

February 25, 2pm3pm.
Free

Listen to little-known stories of freedom-seeking by sea and the less-understood maritime side of the Underground Railroad at this virtual event hosted by the National Lighthouse Museum.

Learn how escapes were managed along the East Coast, moving from the Carolinas, Virginia, and Maryland to safe harbor in northern cities such as Philadelphia, New York, New Bedford, and Boston. Expand your understanding of how freedom was achieved by sea and what this journey looked like for untold numbers of African Americans.
