New Online Exhibit Explores Underground Railroad in Fall River, Massachusetts

A new online exhibit explores the Underground Railroad in Fall River, Massachusetts. “A few clicks tell the stories of Sarah Anna Lewis, who beat the odds to become a school teacher in Fall River around 1870, only to lose her position to gender inequality once she was married; and of Henry Box Brown, a well-known fugitive who was a guest in a Fall River abolitionist’s home some years after he shipped himself in a wooden crate from Richmond, Virginia, to Philadelphia in 1849 after his wife and children were sold into slavery, plus many more.”
