The Underground Railroad: Next Stop, Freedom & Legacy Voices Description

Oakville Museum

Through virtual tours, digitized artifacts, hands-on activities, stories, and a live video interactive presentation, this inquiry-based education program helps students immerse themselves into historical experiences that offer unique opportunities to experience our shared living heritage. Students will explore Oakville’s relationship with the United States in the context of the Underground Railroad. They will learn about how Oakville Harbour played a significant role in the journey to Canada for many freedom seekers. Key figures in the Oakville Underground Railroad story are introduced through the exhibition Freedom, Opportunity and Family: Oakville’s Black History, and excerpts from the multimedia presentation The Underground Railroad: Next Stop Freedom as well as more contemporary stories from the documentary Legacy Voices.

After you register, the Oakville Museum will be in touch regarding program details.

Community Classroom brings free arts, culture, heritage and environmental programs to students attending Oakville's publicly funded schools through in class visits and field trips.

Given that the look of the classroom is now very different, the Foundation has shifted its programming to a virtual platform and is available to not only Oakville students, but any student attending a school within the Halton District and Halton Catholic School Boards.
