In this special experience, students visit both the Cozad-Bates House Interpretive Center and the Cleveland History Center. Students will investigate Cleveland’s Underground Railroad, exploring issues of personal choice and the alliances that enabled the area’s most active abolitionists. Through examining legal documents like the Northwest Ordinance and a historic local court case, students will discover how American slavery affected Northeast Ohioans, discuss concepts such as decision-making and consequences, and draw connections about the lasting impact of slavery, racism, and injustice. 

Please note: both drop-off and pick-up are at Cleveland History Center!
