In the Mist of the Storm: Oakland County’s  Antislavery and Abolitionism Activism in the Nineteenth Century
Oakland County was an important geographical destination for freedom-seekers seeking assistance and refugee while traveling along the Underground Railroad in Michigan. Professor Rochelle E. Danquah will lead a conversation about the role county residents played to support the antislavery and abolitionist causes in the nineteenth century. Danquah is a member of the Michigan Freedom Trail Commission and was the past Director of Education for the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. She has done extensive research on slavery, resistance, and Underground Railroad activism in Michigan, concentrating primarily on Oakland County and the surrounding areas. Currently, she is completing a PhD in History at Wayne State University and the collection material manager at Greenmead Historical Village (Livonia, MI). Presented in conjunction with Juneteenth celebration with the City of Southfield. See more programs at www.cityofsouthfield.com. Generously sponsored by the Friends of the Southfield Public Library.
