In the mid-1800s, Iowa, a free state, experienced ramifications from systemic slavery practiced by southern states, particularly Missouri. Enslaved people attempted to make their way to freedom through many routes in Iowa which led to northern cities and Canada. Networks of people dedicated to helping the freedom seekers formed and came to be called the underground railroad. The Senior Center’s Original Mature Groovers invite you to join on a journey exploring sites and history of the Underground Railroad in southeast Iowa; and an opportunity to deepen relationships with others in your chapter. More details coming soon. Fee includes transportation; participants pay for their own lunch. Fee: $70 ($40 for participants in ICSC’s low-income membership program); pay ICSC at registration.
