Talks begin again!

We are pleased to announce that our Underground Railroad talks are beginning again! Covid stopped our attempts to bring our stories of courage and bravery to the public for far too long. We are now out and about again. Saturday found us at the Bear Public Library in Bear, Delaware. We were there to explain what was going on in the United States in the mid-1800's with regard to the Underground Railroad and the United States Congress.

We were so happy to see a group of curious and interested people who just wanted to know more about the Underground Railroad and what took place around the area where they live. Although we explained the background behind the Underground Railroad, we centered our talk on Thomas Garrett and his extraordinary exploits in Wilmington, Delaware and his subsequent trial in New Castle.

If you would like to attend our talks, we have another you might like to put on your calendar. KURC president, Terry Maguire, will be talking again at the Bear Public Library about the women involved in the Abolitionist movement. There were many women who worked tirelessly for the cause of Abolition. Some names you might know but there are some that may be new to you.

Please join us!

The date is March 27, during Women's History Month.

The place is the Bear Public Library

The time is 6:00 - 7:00 pm
