Gateway to Freedom:
The Hidden History of the Underground Railroad
Wednesday, September 30, 6:30 pm
Museum of the City of New York
Join leading historians Eric Foner and Martha Hodes for a conversation about Gateway to Freedom: The Hidden History of the Underground Railroad (2015), Foner’s latest book, which brings to life New York City’s little-known role in the underground railroad, drawing on a recently-unearthed record of fugitive slaves secretly kept by Sydney Howard Gay, a white New Yorker who worked with black associates in his office — a secret “station” for fugitive slaves.
