Legacy Projects > Connections North Connections North

“Connections North” is a theater performance that peeks into a fugitive’s travel from Kentucky through Indiana. It helps to dispel many Underground Railroad myths while educating the audience on the risks people take for freedom. The year is 1854 and the Fugitive Slave Law has passed. A conductor for the Underground Railroad receives a fugitive in the Indianapolis Station AME Church. The fugitive has been moving from station to station on the Underground Railroad. Witness how the two learn more about each other and form a shared bond during the tense waiting period they must endure, knowing that the possibility of being caught and captured was great. They are willing to take the risk for freedom.
