Leroy Hopkins will present a three part series lecture and power point on the Underground Railroad. Leroy was born and raised in Lancaster County. He is retired Millersville professor. As the associate director of the local Urban League he found local African-Americans lacked a sense of their history and their connection to the community. Leroy put the question to himself in 1977 “Does Lancaster County have a Black history?” He has been answering it ever since.

Part 3: Underground Railroad in Lancaster County, Welsh Mountain and Columbia Vicinities including new information regarding how the Underground Railroad operated in our area.
