Underground Railroad: Escape to Freedom

Underground Railroad: Escape to Freedom is a book + audio + boardgame for children. The book and audio were researched and recorded on location following routes of the UGRR.

With action and adventure as key elements, the experiential boardgame uses UGRR lore, nature signs, survival skills, and African-American spirituals (now known to be secret codes) to engage children in history, foster understanding, and sharpen critical thinking skills.

Award-winning journalist, historian and producer, Dr. Janus Adams is the author of ten books and publisher of BackPax children's media.
