As enslaved Africans tried to gain their freedom, many decided that their only option was to run north into states that did not allow slavery or into Canada.  Many slaves escaped with no assistance, but others were helped by participants of what has become known as the Underground Railroad (UGRR).  The UGRR refers to the network of individuals and communities that helped fugitive slaves.  Sometimes the assistance was spontaneous, other times highly organized.

Jeannie Regan-Dinius, Director of Special Initiatives for DNR's Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology, will discuss Indiana’s role in the events, talk about documenting stories, and offer suggestions you can use in your county.
