Friendly and inquisitive world traveler and radio host Patricia L. Lawrence takes the listener on another interesting audio journey, this time to the 1937 Underground Railroad stop in Rochester, NY - one of the last crucial stops for African-Americans fleeing slavery before reaching the safe haven of Canada.

Lawrence talks with the staff members of the museum on "The Circle of Hope Tour" about the staff’s mission to spread awareness about the courageous efforts of abolitionists and suffragists, like Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony, to ensure freedom to all citizens.
