The Underground Railroad Final 3
Secrets of the Underground Railroad explores the history of slavery in North America, and tells the story of one slave’s journey to freedom in Canada. It explores the local significance of slavery and its effect on community, and features conductors and supporters, such as Harriet Tubman and Elias Smith Adams, whose actions ultimately contributed to the abolishment of slavery in the 19th Century; as well as the hardships faced by runaway slaves and those aiding them in their flight to freedom. The Grimsby Museum invites guests to walk through history, to learn and discover from a new perspective as the experience of one man’s life, and the secrets of the Underground Railroad, are revealed. The exhibit will be featured in The Woolverton Gallery from February to April, 2017.
