The Underground Railroad of the 1800s did not just help free adults. Many a child came with, and without, parents, often through the same perils and sometimes in “plain sight.” Using the overarching theme of slave children’s games, Master Storyteller Sheila Arnold engages the audience in play as well as the serious business of getting freedom.
