Join the Great Bridge Battlefield & Waterways Foundation for historical storytelling at its best. Through story and song, Master Storyteller Sheila Arnold shares the most extraordinary and death-defying escapes for freedom by fugitive enslaved people, many recorded because of their connection with the Underground Railroad. Ms. Sheila, as she is often called, accents these stories with audience participation. This one hour program will have you on the edge of your seat, wondering, “What would I do for freedom?”.

Appropriate for all ages. Sponsored by the Great Bridge Battlefield & Waterways Museum in partnership with the Emanuel AME Church and with the support of Virginia Humanities.
