Historian Jerry Gore, great great grandson of Addison White (called Ohio’s most famous fugitive on the Underground Railroad), and scholar, Peggy Overly, team up to deliver one of the most dynamic presentations and discussions on slavery and the Underground Railroad movement.
Gore and Overly, two of the founders of the National Underground Railroad Museum, Inc. located in historic Maysville, KY have traveled the United States and Canada researching and sharing their stories of the history of the enslaved Africans and the Underground Railroad.
This live and interactive presentation will capture your heart and mind as you explore the life of the enslaved African, his and her courage and determination for freedom on their flight on the Underground Railroad.
Currently Jerry is a retired educator and CEO of Freedom Time. He holds Bachelors and Masters degrees in Education, as well as a Masters degree in Higher Education.
