Master Storyteller Sheila Arnold looks at what formally enslaved people left behind when they escaped to freedom.

Freedom – what we all desire, but if you had to leave something or someone behind, could you do it for the hope of a word called “freedom”?  Through story, song and audience interaction Master Storyteller Sheila Arnold, looks at the fugitive slaves from the Underground Railroad and shares what they left behind – family, clothes, name, even life.  There are surprises that were left behind as well, and this presentation brings humor along with thought-provoking moments.  This program is historical storytelling at its best.  A one-hour program that begins with the audience’s thoughts and leads to stories that will stay in your mind long after the presentation has ended.  For all ages.
