Author and historian Anthony Cohen will be joining us for a special lecture on the history of the Underground Railroad as part of monthly programming for our exhibit, The Underground Railroad: Freedom Seekers on the B&O Railroad.

Join us as he recounts his two-month journey traveling a route of the Underground Railroad by foot, boat, and rail from Maryland to Canada and describes his harrowing experience of being shipped north in a crate like Freedom Seeker Henry “Box” Brown.
