The Underground Railroad and the Pittsburgh Connection

Speaker: K. Carol Braun Kunz, former Pittsburgh Public School teacher and Heinz History Center education coordinator

The enslaved people had a dream of freedom.   Our journey begins in Africa, continues to the north and eventually freedom.   Many traveled through Pittsburgh, and the surrounding area, on their way to Canada and freedom. We will learn of safe houses in our area as the enslaved made their difficult journey north.
