Do your kids think the Underground Railroad was a 19th century subway system? Let your children uncover the true history of this dangerous but imperative network that brought slaves to freedom. Before the Civil War, four homes in Kenosha served as stops in the Underground Railroad, and were facilitated by brave individuals who helped smuggle slaves into Canada. Tour these homes and imagine what it was like for the enslaved to flee in search of emancipation. The Underground Railroad was an enormously organized, impressive, and perilous effort. During Black History Month, invite your family to honor the courage of those who made freedom possible.
