Underground Railroad Project with College of DuPage

As part of our yearlong collaboration with the College of DuPage exploring the issues of racial equity, diversity and inclusion, we recognize the important roles these issues play in shaping our history.  As a part of our effort to engage in thoughtful conversation and educate ourselves and the community, we invited local experts from the College of DuPage and our community to create a history of the Underground Railroad in DuPage County as part of our celebration of Black History Month.  This video is free and available to the public.  I encourage you to watch “The Underground Railroad in DuPage County:  A Path to Freedom” and share with your friends and family.
