Freedom Center celebrates International Underground Railroad Month

The Freedom Center is offering free admission on Sunday, September 10 as part of their Fifth Third Community Days, made possible by the Fifth Third Foundation. As part of the day’s activities, Poets Against Racism & Hate will host two free poetry workshops to discuss social justice issues and how you can transform your reaction into a poem. Space in the poetry workshops is limited but you can register for the morning session in advance; the afternoon session will be first come, first served. Poets Against Racism & Hate will also host prominent local poets for poetry readings in the Harriet Tubman Theater. For those looking to flex different artistic muscles, local artist Brent Billingsley will be leading a public art project throughout the day.
