Telling a story is one thing. Making sure it is heard is everything else. Songs of Freedom is a multi-media, interactive project aimed at students. It brings history—and learning—to life. The project uses contemporary music, storytelling and film to share and preserve the history of the Underground Railroad. Using the most contemporary scholarship available, Songs of Freedom brings students the latest knowledge about this critical juncture of our nation’s history. Told from the point of view of a young girl named Imani, the story connects with students in a way no history book ever could.
