The Underground Railroad was just one of many paths to freedom for enslaved African-Americans in antebellum America, but it played an important role in galvanizing support for the abolition movement. In honor of Juneteenth, volunteer docent Steve Pinkerton will conduct a walking tour of Mount Auburn Cemetery’s Underground Railroad connections and review the activities of key operators, black and white, at its Boston terminus.
