About this Event

February is Black History Month! To make our Forging Freedom: Endurance, Escape, and Rockville’s Underground exhibit more accessible, Peerless Rockville is offering it as a presentation online on Zoom.

Forging Freedom: Endurance, Escape, and Rockville’s Underground Railroad is an exhibit on the story of Rockville in the era of the Underground Railroad, when slavery cast a shadow over life in this farming town, and separatist tensions steadily propelled the nation towards war. Come learn about the brave fugitives who fled slavery in Rockville, the abolitionist network that helped, and the endurance of the enslaved community.

This is an online presentation through Zoom. Upon registration, you will receive the link to the Zoom broadcast.

Are you, a friend, or family member interested in the presentation but unable to use Zoom? Register for the presentation, then e-mail [email protected] or call 301-762-0096 and ask for the telephone number in the days before the start of the event. You can call and listen to the presentation, instead. (Telephone attendees will not be able to view the visual aspect of the presentation.)

You will receive the link in your confirmation e-mail, and via e-mail from Eventbrite prior to the event . The link will also be on the online event page on Eventbrite, but you do not have to access it from there.
