Created by Live Living Network

What does it mean to be free? Explore people whose lives were defined not by their enslavement or freedom, but by their resilience in the face of overwhelming oppression. While famous African American people like Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman led the movement to end slavery, countless others seized freedom for themselves during the Civil War. Encounter the stories of African American people—both enslaved and free—who embarked on a journey to freedom or worked in other ways to end slavery during an incredibly dangerous time in American history. What choices did people make? What dangers did they face? (Richmond, VA)
