Stitching Lives Together:

Stories and Symbols of Freedom

February 26 - May 22, 2021
Fridays & Saturdays 10:30 am - 3 pm at the Anderson-Price Memorial Building

Stitching Lives Together celebrates Black History with an exhibition exploring people and symbols that supported enslaved African-Americans as they escaped through the Underground Railroad to freedom, and contributed to the abolition of slavery.

 

This difficult time in American history is told in this exhibit through stories of descendants of slaves, biographies of leading abolitionists, and a local storyteller. This exhibit features Harriet Tubman, known as the conductor of the Underground Railroad, code name "Moses," who escaped to Philadelphia and made over 13 trips south to assist other slaves.

 

View this exhibit on Friday and Saturdays from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm. Registration required for story tellings.
