Black History Month: Freedom Quilt (all ages - children, teens & adults)

Many African slaves traveled from America to Canada through the Underground Railroad in secret. How did they know how to escape to freedom? People who worked and traveled on the Railroad used secret codes to learn the routes from one safe place to the next. These secret codes were hidden in Quilts.
