Our speaker on March 14, 2018 will be from Bethel AME Church, Lancaster. Barbara Peters will speak to us about the Underground Railroad movement. She will give an overview of the freedom seeker’s experiences and their quest for freedom. The Abolitionist Thaddeus Stevens and Lydia Hamilton Smith, his house keeper, helped the freedom seekers to get where they wanted to go. You will learn exactly what the Underground Railroad was all about.
As we understand, Barbara Peters represents Bethel AME Church and speaks about that Church’s experience in the Underground Railroad movement.
We meet on the second Wednesday of each month, at 12 noon, in the Atrium with the program to start at or about 12:30 PM. Bring your bag lunches [we provide the beverages] and join us to welcome our guest and enjoy another interesting presentation.
