Underground Railroad "Flight to Freedom" Tour
February 6 2016 at 11:00 AM
First Congregational Church of Detroit
Wayne Law's Black Law Students Association invites law students, undergraduate students, professors, faculty and staff to join us on this tour. The tour aims to open the hearts and minds of spectators as we are immersed in the experiences of the ancestors. This event is free to attend, but RSVPs are requested to wsulawblsa@gmail.com. The First Congregational Church of Detroit gives an overview of the tour: "On this re-enactment experience visitors are shackled with wrist bands at the beginning of the Escape which transforms them into passengers on the simulated Underground Railroad Experience. They are led to Freedom by a Conductor. Passengers hide from bounty hunters, cross the Ohio 'Deep River,' take retreat in a safe house in Indiana owned by Abolitionist Levi Coffin, and on to 'Midnight,' the code name for Detroit, and take safe haven at the First Congregational Church of Detroit before moving on to Canada and Freedom.”
