Underground Railroad

As part of our themed leadership month, CMS hosted Capital Repertory Theatre’s Underground Railroad musical. Students learned about the Fugitive Slave Act through the true-life struggles of several Capital region residents, including former slave Solomon Northup, who recounted his time in bondage in his memoir Twelve Years a Slave, and Harriet and Stephen Myers, who published an abolitionist newspaper and risked their own freedom as conductors on the Underground Railroad.
