Abstract:

In the early years of the 19th century, Denmark Vesey and Nat Turner led rebellions against the institution of slavery. However, most resistance efforts took place on an individuals basis as folks decided to runaway to gain their freedom. In the Ohio Valley Region, in particular, as word got back about the best routes north and as free African American communities north of the Ohio River were large enough to support a network of assistance, more groups began to escape. A multiracial, multi-ethnic human-rights network in Cincinnati, known as the Underground Railroad, continued to grow and be more capable of successfully assisting larger groups in their flight. Newspapers referred to these escapes as “slave stampedes.” One of the largest and best documented flights to freedom began on April 2, 18531 named by Levi Coffin as “The Company of Twenty-Eight Fugitives.” Although this movement intensified during the antebellum period, the seeds were planted during the American Revolution and the New Nation periods. This panel seeks to examine this topic via two films.
