National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, Cincinnati

National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, Cincinnati. Dr. Eric R. Jackson, National Underground Railroad Freedom Center

Given its location, the state of Ohio provided a base of operations for abolitionists working to shuttle fugitive slaves from the South. In 2004, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati was established to not only preserve the history of the Underground Railroad, but to also carry on the work of abolitionism. With its outreach organization End Slavery Now, the Freedom Center provides resources with antislavery organizations around the world, working to apply lessons from the American experience with slavery to the global efforts to end the practice.
