This will be the last post of the class I was taking, African Americans, slavery and education of free slaves. todays bus trip took us to a couple of slave graveyards ( flag markers). Then the last stop on the bus trip was a stop on the underground railroad. It is unusual for anyone to have a marker of the underground railroad. The routes of the underground railroad was never marked for fear of retribution.
I am glad I took this class even though on many class days I didn't get home until very late. I also learned that growing up in the north (NJ/NY) I didn't know of segregated schools but people of my same age went to segregated schools in Virginia. Life was different north and south of the Mason/Dixon line.
Now to wait for the fall classes to be listed, I want to take the next class on the civil war.
