Did you know that most enslaved persons who ran away relied on their own ingenuity and skills to gain their freedom? Join Historical Interpreters as they bring the stories of enslaved people who liberated themselves to life. Learn how they navigated uncharted terrain, fed themselves, and found different modes of transport to freedom.

Historical Interpreter Meredith Watson shares information on the clothing of enslaved workers
