Co-Sponsored by the Chai Lifers, Racial Justice Task Force, and the Social Action Committee

“Oberlin is perhaps the most important station along the whole line of the Underground Railway. It has rendered the most important services to Freedom. It is second only to Canada as an asylum for the hunted fugitive.” Hear stories about Oberlin’s most famous freedom seekers and people known to have helped them make their way to freedom. Our guided history walk is 90 minutes long, at a leisurely pace, and the distance is 1 mile.

We will be making reservations for lunch at Lorenzo’s Pizzeria in Oberlin. If you choose to join us for the lunch portion of the program, everyone orders and pays individually at the restaurant from a $15 pre-set menu for our group, prices include beverage, dessert and gratuity.
