The Plummer Family: From Slavery to Freedom

Friday, February 16, 2018


Adam Francis Plummer, the patriarch of the African American Plummer family, lived at Riversdale. In this exhibit, we recognize the 20th anniversary of the Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Act of 1998 by recounting how some members of his family successfully escaped to freedom, while others waited for legal emancipation. We continue the family's stories after freedom and into the 20th century.
