The Footsteps to Freedom program study tour is designed to preserve, document, and teach participants about the secret movement known as the Underground Railroad. This program began in response to the National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Act and is designed to commemorate and interpret the Underground Railroad (UGRR). This program believes that a more accurate study of the UGRR would focus on the desperate struggle for human freedom made by a large, multi-racial, tightly organized group of freedom seekers, abolitioinists, and men and women in North America who saw liberty as a value worth risking everything to achieve. Participants travel a probable route from Kentucky to Canada and visit sites and hear stories of the UGRR movement.
