Teaching Underground Railroad History

Here’s a nice panel discussion on factors involved in teaching the history of the Underground Railroad.

The panel consists of Matt Pinsker of Dickinson College, Spencer Crew of George Mason University, and Timothy Westcott of Park University.

The video’s description reads, “Historians talked about some on the most common misconceptions about the Underground Railroad and imagine what it might have been like to escape from slavery. The scholars explored how to make history more engaging in the classroom and the importance for all Americans to understand the continuing legacy of slavery and freedom.”
