"Beyond the Underground Railroad: A History of Black Settlement in Nineteenth Century Amherstburg" Exhibit Opening & Scholarship Presentation
On Thursday, August 31st at 6:30pm, the Amherstbulorene.email@example.com Freedom Museum will open the exhibit “Beyond the Underground Railroad: A History of Black Settlement in Nineteenth Century Amherstburg” which will occur in conjunction with the Mac Simpson and Maturine-Romain Scholarship Award Presentations.
“Beyond the Underground Railroad: A History of Black Settlement in Nineteenth Century Amherstburg” was created by Masters’ student Karleigh Kochaniec, who was selected for the Local Black History Internship Program. This Internship Program was created in partnership between the University of Windsor’s History Department and the Amherstburg Freedom Museum and funded by a Mitacs Accelerate Program Grant and generous support from the Amherstburg Freedom Museum’s Board of Directors. Under the supervision of University of Windsor History Professor Dr. Gregg French and Amherstburg Freedom Museum Assistant Curator Dr. Lorene Bridgen-Lennie, Kochaniec has conducted thorough research and used the Museum’s Family history series to map out local Black settlement in Essex County.
Admission: Free (Donations Accepted)
