About

Desperate enslaved people of the pre-Civil War South devised all kinds of ways to escape from bondage. Some of their methods were quite ingenious. From hiding in plain sight, to disguises, to piloting a ship under Confederate guns, brave people on the run used all their daring and ingenuity to make a better life. Hear their stirring stories when Millie Henley of Historical Connections presents Clever and Unusual Escapes from Slavery. She will wear period attire and use Power Point illustrations to bring the inspiring stories to life.
