castleAfrican American churches ranked number 1 in churches who supported the cause. In 1831, Mother Bethel A.M.E. held the first black political convention in PA to protest slavery. At this meeting, it was decided that churches should be used as        sanctuaries for runaway slaves. This idea spread throughout the African American churches resulting in stations being created wherever there was an African American Mother Bethel AME Church          church. Philadelphia was home to several churches who participated in the Underground Railroad. Among them are: Mother Bethel AME Church,  First African Presbyterian Church, The African Episcopal Church of St. Thomas, Zoar United Methodist Church, Campbell African Methodist Episcopal Church, First African Baptist Church, Wesley AME Zion Church, Lombard Central Presbyterian Church, Union Baptist Church.

  1. I am and artist and historian. I have received funds to research how the visual arts were used as tools of resistance to enslavement. The narrow focus is visual cues on the Underground Railroad. This grant supported and supports a series, The Silent Code: Visual Cues on the Underground Railroad. I am making art that reasonably and feasibly could have served as signs and symbols along the way that only the initiated would even realize that valuable information was being communicated and shared.

    A MUST attend this session. I have ALWAYS known that the Masons were deeply involved as individuals and as an organization! THANK YOU for organizing this!
