Carl Westmoreland, senior historian at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, presents “Freedom Stations, the Educational, and Historical Foundations of American Liberty.”
As part of Westmoreland’s presentation, Western College for Women will officially receive its designation as a Freedom Station. The event also includes a dramatic presentation, depicting Freedom Summer events, led by Durell Callier, Ph.D., assistant professor of critical youth studies and cultural studies for Miami’s College of Education, Health, and Society, and performed by students from his EDL 333A class, “Youth, Media & Pop Culture.”
The Freedom Stations Program is a legacy national outreach program linking historic Underground Railroad sites, research centers, university library collections, and museums engaged in Underground Railroad and slavery era research and historic preservation through the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.
