Moonstone Arts Center writes that “the Underground Railroad in Philadelphia is one of the high points in Philadelphia’s rich history as a center in the struggle for freedom and equality. From the formation of the Female Anti-Slavery Society in the 1830s through the adoption of the Fifteenth Amendment in 1970 Philadelphians played a major role in the struggle against slavery.”
Moonstone Arts Center is presenting a series entitled the “Underground Railroad in Philadelphia” that explores the period from 1830 – 1870 and some of the many people who were involved in fight to end slavery. This service will explore the role of our Unitarian and Universalist ancestors in this important movement.
