Did you know that Ohio played a pivotal role in the Underground Railroad? Thousands of freedom seekers traveled through Ohio, yet these stories have been obscured. Join us as we speak with Kathy Schulz, author of The Underground Railroad in Ohio, as she shares the stories she’s uncovered and the research she delved into to learn about the past.

This program will be livestreamed from the auditorium, where we will be speaking virtually with the author.

Speaker for this program:

Kathy Schulz is a retired college librarian. A native Ohioan, she has deep roots in the state and degrees from three of its universities. She lived at two major Underground Railroad junctions and wants Americans to know that the Underground Railroad was mostly in Ohio and mostly above ground – not in tunnels! Kathy and her husband currently live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she stays busy with friends, hobbies and grandchildren.
