The story of the Underground Railroad is an epic of high drama, moral courage, religious inspiration, and unexpected personal transformations played by a cast of extraordinary people. For generations Americans thought of the Underground Railroad as made up of mostly high-minded white people condescending to assist terrified and helpless blacks. Only recently have African Americans begun to be restored to their rightful place at the center of the story. But, the Underground Railroad is no more "black history" than it is "white history," and it swept into its orbit courageous Americans of every color. "It was the country's very first racially integrated civil rights movement in which whites and blacks worked together for six decades before Civil War, taking great risks together and saving tens of thousands of lives together."
