Curriculum Connections: ELA, NEW YORK STATE HISTORY
This original docu-play, developed by theREP, used New York State archival documents to bring to life the impact of the Fugitive Slave Act in the Capital Region. The story tells of the intense moral struggles of several local people, including former slave Solomon Northup and Albany’s Harriet and Stephen Myers, who produced an anti-slavery newspaper and risked their freedom to be conductors on the Underground Railroad.
