About the event

We're continuing the celebration of International Underground Railroad month this September with a TWO STATE TOUR! In collaboration with historian and preservationist, Dolly Marshall, we're hosting a guided walking tour! It begins with waterfront storytelling in Philadelphia as Conductor Dee shares the role of the Delaware River and the Middle Passage, plus the escape story of Jane Johnson. Next we'll board the Freedom Boat and journey as countless African Americans did to the shore of New Jersey. There, Dolly Marshall will share about the 18th century slave auction site, markers to recognize those who were enslaved, and stories of building a life after slavery in N.J. We'll also visit Macedonia AME church. The tour concludes with a trip back to Philadelphia.
