Joseph Farr

Joseph Farr

Station Master on the Underground Railroad
Imagine what it was like to be a slave … to seek freedom … to  set others free! Joseph Farr will help your students consider:
  • The conditions in which enslaved people lived and their efforts to escape
  • The factors that motivated Lincoln to issue the Emancipation Proclamation
  • The Proclamation’s legacy over the past 150 years
  • The future of race relations, equality, and opportunity in Minnesota and the nation
  • What it takes to become an agent for positive change  
This program is presented by the Minnesota Historical Society in partnership with the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas. Funding provided by the Otto Bremer Foundation.
