A unique resource

The Africana Studies & Research Center

The Africana Studies & Research Center extends the teaching and learning opportunities that we provide in both our undergraduate and graduate classrooms well beyond to service learning projects and community initiatives, from local to transnational contexts.

The Center

Underground Railroad Hub

Exploration on the Underground Railroad

The Underground Railroad Hub

The projects featured here provide information about documented underground railroad activities in our region, tell us about the small Black communities that settled here to escape slavery after New York state outlawed it in 1827, and inform us about those ordinary people who braved assisting freedom seekers at great personal risk to themselves and their families.
