LOCKS OPENED: THE CHESAPEAKE WATERWAYS AND THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD

Saturday 19 October: 7:30pm - 9:30pm

Unitarian Church Hall, Emmanuel Road, (entry from Earl Street), CB1 1JW

Discover the true stories of some of the people who used the waterways in their flight to freedom. Taken from the book by William Still, a conductor of the Pennsylvania Underground Railroad, the show will introduce you to Harriet Tubman, “Boxcar” Brown and Ellen Craft and many others, the hardships they faced and the sacrifices they made.
By telling a selection of their stories, Sheila demonstrates what people can overcome when the desire for freedom and the pressure for change become overwhelming.
Sheila Arnold is well known in the United States for her historical storytelling, and her performances based on black history and on the civil rights movement.
