Be Sure to Watch! "Underground Railroad: The William Still Story"

Posted on 03 Feb 2012

Extraordinary people risked their lives to help fugitive slaves escape via the clandestine Underground Railroad. Among them was William Still of Philadelphia, a free black man who accepted delivery of transported crates containing human “cargo.” This documentary reveals some of the dramatic, lesser-known stories behind this humanitarian enterprise, and explores key Canadian connections, including the surprising fate of former slaves who crossed the border to “Freedom’s Land.”

Be sure to watch! "Underground Railroad: The William Still Story" Monday, February 6, at 9 p.m.
