lessons from America

reconnecting with the historic vibe

I’ve just had couple of days in Cincinnati not doing politics and hearing only of the splash landing rather than the economic crash landing. But on Saturday things changed. I went to the Freedom Center – the Underground Railroad museum – to learn about this amazing part of the Americian story. The heroism and activism of ordinary people – black and white – who helped slaves escape from the south and provided safe passage for them on their journey to freedom.
