International Underground Railroad Month

September marks International Underground Railroad month, which celebrates the network of people and places that played a role in helping people escape from slavery. September was chosen to represent International Underground Railroad Month as it is the month that Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman, two of the most well known freedom seekers, escaped slavery.

This September, join Southern Indiana attractions, including the Carnegie Center for Art & History and Town Clock Church, as they host exhibits and events commemorating the Underground Railroad.
