There is still time: Join Us on the Footsteps to Freedom Underground Railroad Field Study XI
On July 27th, 2008, the Footsteps to Freedom Underground Railroad Study tour will take participants onto a journey inundated with incredible sights and locations. The journey will start in Columbus, Ohio and end in Buffalo New York.
"I have learned that I am the legacy of a people who were determined to see all of their future generation free. All descendants of ex-slaves owe it to their forefathers [to] embrace their freedom, live life to the fullest, and be the best they can be," said Pam Lockhart, a 2007 participant.
"If it wasn't for the stories told and remembered, past down and listened to, written and read, we would have no history and the voices would be lost," said Harriet, a 2007 participant.
All of the locations you will get to see will allow you to realize the suffrage of Black American people and the commitment to fight oppression. This amazing journey will take you to another country, four states, and eighteen cities, in which you can acquire lasting memories.
The sign up date to go on this memorable trip has been extended until the twenty first of July. Hurry now to ensure your spot of a lifetime.
