Course detail: OSH016 - The Underground Railroad in Northeast Kansas
During the mid-19th century, the Underground Railroad was a critical network of routes and safe houses that provided escaped slaves a pathway from plantations in the South to freedom in the North or Canada. In this course, we will closely examine the important role Northeast Kansas played in the Underground Railroad. We'll meet the heroic men and women who risked their lives to aid those desperate fugitives whose only road to freedom ran through Kansas. We'll also meet those brave refugees, hear their stories, and visit the local routes and safe houses that were critical to their perilous journeys to freedom.PLEASE NOTE: THIS COURSE AT REGNIER HALL ON THE KU EDWARDS CAMPUS WAS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED TO BEGIN ON JUNE 28, BUT DUE TO A CONFLICT, IT WILL NOW BEGIN ONE WEEK LATER ON THURSDAY, JULY 5, WITH SESSIONS ON JULY 12 AND JULY 19.
