Black History with Kathleen Lindsey
For centuries stories have been handed down concerning that secret system called, “The Underground Rail Road.”
This organized system was a network of many sympathetic people who were willing to risk their lives for the cause of freedom.
They used coded words, songs, quilts and the North Star that aided the runaway slaves to freedom. Many houses, churches, barns
and schools were referred to as Safe Houses or Stations that served as hiding places or rest stops, on the secret railways,
in search of freedom. Miss Kat portrays that famous U.R.R. conductor, Harriet Tubman who, after becoming free, secretly stole
her way back into the slave states and rescued over 300 of her people, and never lost a passenger. As a storyteller and historian,
Kathleen D. Lindsey continues to educate and bring awareness to all nationalities not only during Black History Month, but
celebrates her ancestry year round.
