. In the mid-1800s, some Kansans defied federal, state, and territorial laws in pursuit of a common goal: liberty for all. This presentation explores true accounts of little-known operatives who worked illegally on the Underground Railroad in Kansas, a clandestine network that helped guide enslaved people to freedom. Risking fearful penalties for their underground involvement, these men, women, and children—both black and white—offer us examples of what is possible for justice-seekers working together. Presented by Anne Hawkins, a historian and teaches at Washburn University. Sponsored by the Kansas Humanities Council.
