Myers and the Underground Railroad

Thursday, February 16, 2023 07:00 PM

As part of the 3rd Annual Third Thursday Winter Lecture Series, Mary Liz and Paul Stewart of the Underground Railroad Education Center in Albany, NY will discuss Harriet and Stephen Myers. The Myers were black abolitionists, whose residence was a headquarters for Underground Railroad activity in the Capital Region in the mid 1850's. They serve as a lasting-legacy for social justice and reform. Their home is now a museum and community place of gathering that serves as a reckoning space with the past, and also inspires future generations. Free and open to the public. No registration required. WebEx free web meeting platform, link goes live at 6:50pm. Virtual via WebEx.
