At the ceremony and afterward I got to thinking about the underground railroad.
How did you gather information about the underground railroad, which was a clandestine, illegal activity?
James launched a foundation in Germany called Sabatina, which acts as an underground railroad, finding girls shelter and jobs.
"network of U.S. anti-slavery activists helping runaways elude capture," attested from 1847, but said to date from 1831 and to have been coined in jest by bewildered trackers after their slaves vanished without a trace. Originally mostly the term for escape networks in the (then) western states of the U.S.
A network of houses and other places that abolitionists used to help slaves escape to freedom in the northern states or in Canada before the Civil War. The escaped slaves traveled from one “station” of the railroad to the next under cover of night. Harriet Tubman was the most prominent “conductor” on the Underground Railroad.
