This video is a documentary of the Underground Railroad Mural created during an Art in Education Residency at H. L. Trigg Community School in Elizabeth City North Carolina . The concept was inspired by the history of "The Great Dismal Swamp" and its connection to the 'Underground Railroad'. The students went on a field trip to explore the historic Dismal Swamp as part of the Underground Railroad Path to Freedom experience. North Carolina artist Tunde Afolayan, worked with the students to transform the information collected through research into this powerful visual narrative which reflect on an important part of American history.
