History Happy Hour: Beyond Shackles–The Fight for Freedom

Monday, August 10


Pair your favorite at-home beverage with this history lesson!

By the mid-nineteenth century, not all African Americans were enslaved. Some were free, some were abolitionists and spies, and some were part of the Underground Railroad. Others became the first African Americans to contribute and serve aboard the US Navy’s first ironclad, the USS Monitor.
