LATIBAH’s “Great Escape” Exhibit @ the Mosaic Lawn

The bloodhound Slave Catchers became the Law hunting the Enslaved and harshly punished anyone daring to help. Despite this, a determined and diverse secret community risked their lives for the Greatest Escape ever, the Underground Railroad.

See the secrets of the Underground Railroad as LATIBAH brings History and Art to Life! “The Great Escape” is LATIBAH’s signature exhibit comprised of 8 true to life murals depicting the most complex and intimate portrayal of the Underground Railroad.

Below is a collage of pictures from “The Great Escape” Exhibit Opening that took place this past year on October 15, 2016.  This culturally filled community event was free and open to public and took place outdoors.

Activities Included:

*Community Drum Circle by Drums 4 Life

*African Drum & Dance Performance by Oneaka Dance Company and Gary Mumford Youth Drum Ensemble

*Underground Railroad Lecture & Re-enactment

As a Community we Learned, Experienced, and Shared in the African traditions by way of the talking drum via storytelling, dance, and art.  It was a beautiful event and more are to come in Spring 2017.
