Please join us for a free, informative presentation on Saturday, October 21st, at 3:00 p.m. Norman K. Dann, Ph.D., will present a talk on The Underground Railroad in Central New York. As a process for achieving freedom, The Underground Railroad challenged the dominant morality of American culture in the nineteenth century. We will examine its hazards and benefits for those who used it either as escapees or stationmasters.

A resident of Peterboro, New York, Norm has dedicated his retirement to communicating the importance of local history regarding abolition. He is a member of the Peterboro-based Smithfield Community Association. He is a founding member of the National Abolition Hall of Fame and serves on its Cabinet of Freedom.
