Wed Cafe – The Slave Experience and the Underground Railroad

“The Slave Experience and the Underground Railroad” will be our Wed Cafe topic on Wednesday, May 12th at 7:00 pm at the church (outside with a bonfire, bring chairs – if weather is bad then we will be inside). Pittsford native Jerry Bennett, is an Underground Railroad enthusiast, and he will help attendees follow the slaver’s ship from England to West Africa, drop down into the ship’s hold as she sails across the Atlantic’s Middle Passage toward the Americas, witness the sale on the auction block in the South, view life on the plantation, imagine the escape and envision life on the run while meeting the many heroes on the Underground Railroad’s routes to freedom.
