The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is a community-focused facility. Our programs and activities calendar is filled with events from -- and for -- local audiences. We also collaborate with dozens of community organizations to host presentations, forums and dialogs intended to foster improved interracial understanding.
A core activity of the Freedom Center is educating the general public about the history of the Underground Railroad against the broader story of America's struggle for freedom. By combining elements of freedom struggles past and present, technology, and 21st Century teaching and learning, we accomplish several goals in line with our mission to extend the lessons of courage, cooperation, and perseverance beyond the walls of our facility.
Programs for the general public are a staple of the Freedom Center's daily schedule. Lectures, family programs, festivals, entertainments and other special events scheduled throughout the year are augmented with nationally renowned speakers and guests.
We provide programmatic experiences designed to enhance pathways for increasing youth leadership and economic empowerment.
