Path to Freedom

Uploaded by ALPLM
As part of our celebration of Black History Month, Owen Muelder from the Galesburg Colony Underground Railroad Freedom Station at Knox College will share his knowledge of how The Abolitionist Movement helped the Underground Railroad in becoming the first socially integrated movement in American history. The Anti-slavery Movement and UGRR were very significant in Illinois and because of its borders with slave states to the South and West, a significant number of fugitive slaves sought their freedom by escaping through the Prairie State.
