Under Freedom’s Sky: Underground Railroad Presentation

February 6, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Please join the Phillips Museum of Art in welcoming the African American Historical Society of South Central Pennsylvania for a special performance highlighting different Lancaster landmarks, sites, and historical figures that help illustrate the city’s role in the Underground Railroad. This one hour live presentation is based on the stories told by volunteers who regularly participate in the Historical Society’s popular African American Heritage Walking Tours.

The presentation will take place in the Dana Gallery underneath Sonya Clark’s site-specific work Finding Freedom which highlights Lancaster as a location along the Underground Railroad and the use of the night sky, specifically the Big Dipper constellation, to orient those seeking freedom. Free and open to all.
