Emancipation Day Preview: Forging Freedom
November 1, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Observe Emancipation Day in Maryland with a sneak peek of Peerless Rockville’s new Forging Freedom exhibit at the Historic Red Brick Courthouse.
Forging Freedom: Endurance and Escape on Rockville’s Underground Railroad is the story of Rockville in the era of the Underground Railroad, when slavery cast a shadow over life in this farming town, and separatist tensions steadily propelled the nation towards war. Come learn about the brave fugitives who fled slavery in Rockville, the abolitionist network that helped, and the endurance of the enslaved community.
Light Refreshments will be served. RSVP here. Suggested donation $5.
