Sobre mimAbout us: Paul and Mary Liz Stewart, co-founders of the Underground Railroad History Project of the Capital Region of the State of New York in Albany, NY. Around 1998 we started a personal study of the Underground Railroad and through reading felt we were finding a different story than the one that often got told to us. We decided to share what we thought we were learning which took the form of creating walking tours, then a conference which repeated annually, an organization, discovering an unknown site and getting it on the national register, working to restore the site, lots of talks to groups and preservation awards, articles, an appointment as "Scholar In Residence" at Sage College in Troy for both of us and on and on. Now it has been seventeen years of walking tours, talks, and conferences. We continue to be excited about this subject.

Sobre a minha bibliotecaThis is only our library on the subject of the Underground Railroad and African American history. A large number of the books we have read and some we haven't. We continue to learn on this subject. We'd love to talk to anyone on this subject. By the way - The UGRR is for us a period in history and a social movement. To say that it is a "string of safe houses" misses the real story. To associate it only with Harriet Tubman or Quakers misses the vastness of the story. Quilts and tunnels have nothing (or little) to do with the story. The story is to be found in the stories of escape where the names and stories of freedom seekers are found, in the movement that supported these escapes, and the story of the pioneers, settlers, and emigrees as they accomplished their freedom.
