Racing for Freedom: the Real Stories of the Underground Railroad

Historian and author Kate Clifford Larson will explore the myths and facts of the Underground Railroad

Kate Clifford Larson will discuss the Underground Railroad, using Harriet Tubman as a base point, and explore a more broad focus upon Central New York.  Larson will discuss the myths and how we know what we know now to be true, why we need to know the truth, and why we should be celebrating these stories (given the current climate and controversy over Confederate statues) to honor these American heroes and make them legends!
