C.R. Gibbs Lecture Series on African American History and Culture
In celebration of 2018 African American History Month, noted historian C.R. Gibbs will deliver a presentation from his African American History and Culture Series entitled “The Underground Railroad in the Nation’s Capital.” This presentation will explore the little-known, seldom-taught story of how freedom-seeking African Americans used the backroads, attics, cellars and streets of Washington, D.C. as a network to liberty. Gibbs will specifically look at the operation of the Underground Railroad in the Georgia Avenue-Brightwood neighborhood.
Join us for this thought-provoking lecture. Program sponsored by the Friends of the Takoma Park Neighborhood Library.
