Freedom doesn't always come easy
Friday, February 28, 2014 10:00 AM
Southwestern Elementary School third-grader Ethan Cornett answers a question about the Underground Railroad as he and his classmates visited with Sue Livers who portrayed Patsy Ann Harris at St. Stephen's A.M.E. Church this morning.
The event was part of the local Black History Month celebration.
Harris was a slave whose freedom was purchased by her future husband, Rev. Chapman Harris.
Livers told the students that Chapman Harris was a blacksmith, pastor and a conductor on the Underground Railroad in the Madison area.
