Journal 2 Virtual Tour : In order to have a full understanding of Cecil Fosters “Why Blacks Get Mad”

Hi everyone!

This is a virtual tour about the Underground Rail Road!

In order to have a full understanding of Cecil Fosters “Why Blacks Get Mad”, one has to fully understand the root of slavery against Blacks, and the reasoning behind coming to Canada in search of multiculturalism.


I encourage you to take this virtual tour
"Your body, your time, your very breath belong to a farmer in 1850s Maryland. Six long days a week you tend his fields and make him rich. You have never tasted freedom. You never expect to.
And yet . . . your soul lights up when you hear whispers of attempted escape. Freedom means a hard, dangerous trek. Do you try it"?

Hi ChenelleM,

I enjoyed that "virtual tour." It actually made me feel as if I was headed for a journey once I put my mind to it. It's just amazing how one person's courage and determination led to the taste of freedom for many other African Americans. Great post. Thanks! Smile
