In partnership with the Evanston History Center, the Art Center will present photographs by Jeanine Michna-Bales, who has spent more than a decade meticulously researching ‘fugitive’ slaves and the ways they escaped to freedom. These dramatic photographs will piece together a narrative of the Underground Railroad, and the escape of an estimated 100,000 slaves between 1830 and the end of the Civil War in 1865.
