Journey to Freedom


The African American Museum and Wickiup Hill invite you to join us for  “Journey to Freedom,”

a simulated outdoor Underground Railroad experience, Saturday September 26th, 2015 from 5:30 to 8pm. The participants will be transported back in time to experience perils and triumphs of their escape from slavery.

On this journey, they will learn to navigate using the stars and build a fire from abolitionists “conductors.” They will hide from slave catchers in the Iowa terrain and encounter farmers, and bounty hunters while trying to navigate their way to Canada. Who can they trust? Will their group make it to freedom? Or will they be captured and sent back into slavery?

If you are interested in signing up for this event, please contact Krystal Gladden at 319-862-2101 x 226 or send your registration form to

This event costs $3 per participant.
