The Michigan Freedom Trail Commission preserves, protects and promotes the rich legacy of the Underground Railroad and the antislavery movement in Michigan.
The Michigan Freedom Trail Commission and its partners, the Wayne County Community College District and Michigan History Center, announce the third annual Underground Railroad Heritage Gathering will take place as a series of virtual presentations on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in September 2020.
The virtual sessions are free and open to individuals, organizations and communities interested in our statewide Underground Railroad heritage.
This year's events, which will be hosted using the Zoom platform, include panel discussions, local research, tips for researching local Underground Railroad history and more.
Once you register for a session, you will receive an email confirmation with the detailed event information, including log on credentials.
