The Promised Land

A Journey through the Underground Railroad


You are a slave born in the late 1800's in North Carolina . At the age of seven you were sold by your plantation owner and moved to Virginia . You are now far from home and all you know is slave life. Six long days a week you tend fields. You have never tasted freedom. You never expect to. There are few people talking about an underground railroad that leads to the Promised Land. The opportunity has come for you to leave your salve life and join the Underground Railroad. You are fully aware of all the risk of being a runaway. Your mind knows nothing but salve life and you often think about freedom. This choice is yours.

Is freedom worth it?
