In the 1800s, an estimated 100,000 people learned the meaning of freedom by way of the Underground Railroad. This summer, 10 high school students from Chapel Hill and their four chaperones will follow that same path to learn their own meaning of freedom, but they'll do so from the seat of a bike.
The NPS National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Program, the Interpretation and Education Division, Youth Programs Office, and the Office of Public Health have partnered with Spoke 'N Revolutions Youth Cycling to take a group of diverse high school students from Chapel Hill, NC on an 1800 mile ride along the Underground Railroad.
Ten students will get a lesson in history this summer as they bike the Underground Railraod, a network of safe houses and sympathizers who helped escaping slaves before the Civil War.
