Join us in celebration of Black History Month for a free, public screening of the PBS documentary Underground Railroad: The William Still Story. The documentary recounts the story of William Still — a Philadelphia abolitionist who risked his life to help Freedom Seekers as an agent for the Underground Railroad. Screening will begin at 5:30 PM. Troy Mosley, Managing Director of Content for MPT, will be at the Museum to introduce the film before it begins.
Before the screening, join chief curator Jonathan Goldman at 4:30 PM on a tour of the new exhibit, The Underground Railroad: Freedom Seekers on the B&O Railroad.
Food and beverages will be available for purchase on site.
This is a FREE event. Free admission begins at 4 PM. Limited access to the Museum (Roundhouse and exhibits) available 4-6:30 PM.
