A #bicyclist, a #pedestrian, and #traffic cross Liberty Street at Southwest Jefferson Avenue on Monday, Nov. 20, 2017 in front of the #PrestonJackson #sculpture "Knockin' on Freedom's Door" at the #PeoriaCivicCenter. The sculpture, dedicated on Oct. 24, 2008, commemorates the former site of the Moses and Lucy Pettengill House, a safe house in the #UndergroundRailroad. From the 1840s to the 1860s, hundreds of runaway #slaves found #refuge there on the way north to #freedom.

#ColsonWhitehead is coming to Vienna on Sunday.
There are a number of old #foundations in the trails that surround our #home in Sugarbush and the history is quite fascinating. Some are from the late 1800’s when what is now called the #OroMoraine was settled by #farmers. The hilly, sandy soil proved difficult to grow anything and in the early 1900’s the farmers left and the government bought much of the land and planted pine trees.  Some of the foundations date back to days of the #undergroundrailroad and some are from later periods in the 1900’s. All in all, hiking and biking in #simcoecountyforests is an incredible history lesson @downeycampbelltrish @desert_frog

There are 1,078 days until the next presidential election. I have resolved to post each day until then one photo about which Kurt Vonnegut's Uncle Alex might have said, "If this isn't nice, I don't know what is." DAY 377: The Levi and Catharine Coffin House in Fountain City, Indiana—a stop of the Underground Railroad. The Coffin House is a National Historic Landmark. #ifthisisntniceidontknowwhatis #levicoffinhouse #undergroundrailroad #fountaincityindiana

This bronze bust of #HarrietTubman welcomes guests as they enter the new visitor center for the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park in #ChurchCreek, #Maryland. The piece stands at five feet tall, her actual height, and depicts her as she would have looked during her time on the #UndergroundRailroad in the 1850s. According to the artist’s statement, sculptor Brendan O’Neill portrayed her without a headscarf or bandana in order to show her freedom from any vestige of bondage. The bust rests atop a wooden base made of oak and red cedar. The oak slab comes from a 460-year-old tree from #WyeMills, Maryland, and it signifies her deep connections to the state. The red cedar, which is indigenous to her Maryland birthplace of #DorchesterCounty, represents her work alongside her father as a logger, cutting and hauling logs destined for the shipyards in #Baltimore. It also symbolizes her reliance on the Maryland and #Delaware woodlands for sanctuary and protection while traveling along the Underground Railroad. #NPSArt #NPS #NationalParkService #FindYourPark #GoParks #TheNationalParksPass #MDinFocus #VisitMaryland @nationalparkservice @goparks @thenationalparkspass @tubmanugrrnps @visitmaryland

Patiently waiting for Thanksgiving.. I am needing to remind myself daily to be thankful for having a place to live while our home is being remodeled. It's been so frustrating dealing with insurance and missing my own space. But I am truly thankful and blessed for this time ♡

The nation’s largest monument to the Underground Railroad, located in Battle Creek, Michigan, is a 28-foot-long, 14-foot high bronze statue, which shows Harriet Tubman and local “conductors” Erastus and Sarah Hussey as they lead a group of runaway slaves to safety. 
_____
The sculpture was commissioned by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation as a way to show gratitude towards all the men and women who operated the Underground Railroad, as well as the slaves traveled from the South all the way to Canada.

"Martha and the Slave Catchers" is out in hardcover today!! My first illustrated Middle Grade Novel, written by Harriet Hyman Alonso, published by @7storiespress . Link in bio 😊
.
.
Thirteen-year-old Martha Bartlett insists on being a part of the Underground Railroad rescue to bring her brother Jake back home to their abolitionist community in Connecticut. It's 1854 and though African-Americans and mixed-race peoples in the north are supposed to be free, seven-year-old Jake, the orphan of a fugitive slave, is kidnapped by his "owner" and taken south to Maryland. Jake is what we'd now describe as on the autism spectrum, and Martha knows just how to reassure him when he's anxious or fearful. Using aliases, disguises, and other subterfuges, Martha artfully dodges Will and Tom, the slave catchers, but struggles to rectify her new reality with her parents' admonition to always tell the truth....

Wenn ein Autor zum Pulitzerpreisträger wird und sein Buch sehr gefeiert wird, dann möchte ich sowas natürlich auch lesen. Da mir die deutsche Ausgabe für die paar Seiten aber zu teuer war habe ich auf die englische Originalausgabe zurückgegriffen. Jetzt ist es so: Ich gebe zu, ich habe längst nicht alles verstanden. Ich war schon überrascht wie schwer es mir viel den Inhalt zu verstehen. Aber ich denke trotzdem, dass ich im Großen und Ganzen alles verstanden habe. Und das ist, wenn ich ehrlich sein soll, nicht so besonders gut. Mich konnte die Geschichte selten wirklich fesseln und auch berührt hat mich das ganze nicht. Es ist, sorry dass ich das so sagen muss, einfach eine ganz typische Sklavengeschichte. Natürlich kommt dann immer diese Frage wie man selbst mit sowas umgangen wäre usw. usw. usw. Und ja, das alles war extrem grausam und aus heutiger Sicht komplett unverständlich. Und ja, man überlegt sich auch wie es heute mit Rassismus und Co aussieht und auch da stellt man dann fest: Mist, irgendwie ist eben doch nichts „gut“. Aber das alles hab ich schon so oft gemacht da fehlt mir einfach die wirklich gute, fesselnde Story die das ausgleicht. Und die fehlt. Natürlich: Es. Ist. Kein. Schlechtes. Buch. Aber für mich ist es eben auch kein besonders. Ich bin jedenfalls froh, dass ich dieses Buch nach 1 ½ Monaten Lesezeit endlich durch habe.

Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. Life is hell for all the slaves, but especially bad for Cora; an outcast even among her fellow Africans, she is coming into womanhood—where even greater pain awaits. When Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they decide to take a terrifying risk and escape. Matters do not go as planned—Cora kills a young white boy who tries to capture her. Though they manage to find a station and head north, they are being hunted.

In Whitehead’s ingenious conception, the Underground Railroad is no mere metaphor—engineers and conductors operate a secret network of tracks and tunnels beneath the Southern soil. Cora and Caesar’s first stop is South Carolina, in a city that initially seems like a haven. But the city’s placid surface masks an insidious scheme designed for its black denizens. And even worse: Ridgeway, the relentless slave catcher, is close on their heels. Forced to flee again, Cora embarks on a harrowing flight, state by state, seeking true freedom.

Like the protagonist of  Gulliver’s Travels, Cora encounters different worlds at each stage of her journey—hers is an odyssey through time as well as space. As Whitehead brilliantly re-creates the unique terrors for black people in the pre–Civil War era, his narrative seamlessly weaves the saga of America from the brutal importation of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of the present day.  The Underground Railroad is at once a kinetic adventure tale of one woman’s ferocious will to escape the horrors of bondage and a shattering, powerful meditation on the history we all share.

Sooo I finally finished Gateway To Freedom! It was a very long, but informative, read:). For me personally, I wasn’t the hugest fan of this book due to the sheer volume of names, figures and places thrown into every sentence which in my opinion made it hard for the writing to flow and me to get properly into the book. Nonetheless it was a fascinating read, I learnt a massive amount of new information, and I was able to delve into an area of history touched upon in my A level course more deeply! ✨

The @woollymammothtc in DC is one of my favorite repeat clients. They take such creative risks with their productions, and that translates to the images we make together as well. For this season we were shooting for three wildly varied productions, Underground Railroad, Nothing to Lose and Familiar. I had the real pleasure of working with @jimpascoe and @refinedcreative on these concepts; they had been at the top of my collaboration wish list for a long time and they didn’t disappoint.

Way up high in the peak painting our barn on the east coast. Summer 1990. Family home is a Civil War era home and the barn was actually a carriage house for the horses and carriages in the late 1800's. Our town was part of the Underground Railroad and was historically very anti-slavery. Grew up surrounded by history. Grateful for that. #jackholmes #barns #history #undergroundrailroad #abolitionist #civilwar #screenwriting #screenwriter #RFK #carriagehouse #oldbarn #historicalpreservation

Had an great week in the Great Dismal Swamp!! Had the opportunity to educate people on the ecosystem, history and future of the largest wildlife refuge in northeast America. I am so blessed that I get to educate the public about nature and history of the underground railroad and future endeavors by the Great Dismal Swamp. #greatdismalswamp #getoutside #undergroundrailroad #nature

Ce week-end j’ai terminé Underground Railroad de Colson Whitehead 📖 Je ne pensais pas autant aimer ce roman (j’avais même un peu peur d’être déçue) mais finalement j’ai passé un très bon moment et j’ai été agréablement surprise par cette histoire. Je l’ai trouvée très pertinente et bien dosée 👌🏻 Une très bonne lecture que je vous recommande 💙
Vous l’avez lu ?

I went to this new museum yesterday. Its worth checking out. Go on a warmer day than I did. They have outdoor things I didn't check out bc of the cold.  #harrietttubman #undergroundrailroad #churchcreek #dorchesterco
African American sailors played a major role on the #UndergroundRailroad. Black sailors had more mobility than free and enslaved people. They transported goods to markets all along the northern and southern coastlines of the United States. They had knowledge of the landscapes and waterways, and knew where the safe houses were on the Underground Railroad and who operated them. Black sailors relayed this information to free and enslaved people so they can escape from slavery. Also, black sailors hid freedom seekers on their boats and sailed them to freedom. #HarrietTubman learned about the Underground Railroad from black sailors. Tubman continued to use this network of communication during her years as conductor on the Underground Railroad.

Allerdings: Auf Englisch klingt der Roman eleganter. #undergroundrailroad #whitehead
Ein erzählerisch langweiliges und auf Deutsch sprachlich schwaches Buch #undergroundrailroad #whitehead
Da ich von @susibelle78 zu #tbrbooktag getaggt wurde, zeige ich hier gerne meinen Stapel ungelesener Bücher 📚😀
▶️1️⃣ Donald Ray Pollock: #knockemstiff (ich fand „Die himmlische Tafel“ großartig)
▶️2️⃣ Merrick: #bittenichtlesen (@pinkfisch_royal hat so begeistert im Rahmen der #wub17 davon berichtet, dass ich es mir sofort gebraucht besorgt habe)
▶️3️⃣ Bernhard Aichner: #dietotenfrau (der Autor war hier in der Nähe zu einer Lesung, die sehr interessant und unterhaltsam war)
▶️4️⃣ Matthew Weiner: #allesueberheather (hier bei Instagram haben mich tolle Rezensionen quasi gezwungen, dass Buch zu kaufen)
▶️5️⃣ Marc-Uwe Kling: #qualityland (ich höre es als Hörbuch im Auto und kann mich vor Lachen kaum aufs Fahren konzentrieren, wobei mich diese Zukunftsvision auch sehr nachdenklich stimmt)
▶️6️⃣ Mariana Leky: #dieherrenausstatterin (da „Was man von hier aus sehen kann“ eines meiner Lieblingsbücher ist, muss ich natürlich weitere Bücher der Autorin lesen)
▶️7️⃣ Daniel Kehlmann: #tyll (das Thema und der historische Hintergrund machen mich neugierig)
▶️8️⃣ Jean-Paul Didierlaurent: #dasmaedchenvonnummer12 (ich liebe „Die Sehnsucht des Vorlesers“)
▶️9️⃣ Ingrid Kaltenegger: #dasglueckisteinvogerl (ich mag es sehr, wenn phantastische Elemente in Romanen eine Rolle spielen)
▶️1️⃣0️⃣ Colson Whitehead: #undergroundrailroad (der geschichtliche Hintergrund interessiert mich sehr)
▶️1️⃣1️⃣ Svealena Kutschke: #stadtausrauch (ich liebe Lübeck und Geschichten aus Lübeck)
▶️1️⃣2️⃣ Sarah Perry: #dieschlangevonessex (die Mischung von Wissenschaft und Legende hört sich toll an)
Euch noch einen schönen Sonntag! 📚☀️

Poetry and prayer put ideas in people’s heads that got them killed, distracting them from the ruthless mechanism of the world.

Excerpt From: Colson Whitehead. “The Underground Railroad.” یک از بهترین رمان‌های این سال‌های اخیر. هرچند من علاقه زیادی به موضوعاتی این چنینی ندارم اما این رمان به شدت ارزش خواندن دارد.  #undergroundrailroad #colsonwhitehead #nationalbookaward #novel #americannovel #doubleday #newyork #randomhouse

"I am a spy, a sleeper, a spook, a man of two faces." - Viet Thanh Nguyen, 'The Sympathizer' 📖
I will be reading two Pulitzer Prize winners back to back. 👌
📖
After delibirating what to read next, I decided to follow Linda's @bookflavors advice. Read them all at once! So, I read the first few pages of each book from my previous post. 'The Sympathizer' grabbed my attention the most. 
The quote above is the first sentence of the book. 😍

As for 'Underground Railroad', I'll be reading it along with a relative of mine soon-ish.

I’ve had the honor of spending the day sharing local history/family history of Freedom Road. #undergroundrailroad

Today, #visitors enjoyed their #Tubmanexperience with a performance from the 18th Street Singers, a singing group from the Nation's Capital. They sang traditional spirituals telling the journey of freedom seekers on the #UndergroundRailroad at the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center's Outdoor Ampitheater.
