EVERYDAY FREEDOM HEROES GALLERY
Join National Underground Railroad Freedom Center President Dr. Clarence G. Newsome as he explores the life and legacy of Margaret Garner. Garner was a former enslaved woman seen by the world as a heroine who sacrificed "killed" her daughter rather than see her returned to slavery.
