I knew about slaves, I knew about what they did to escape, I knew they worked hard and lived bad lives, however the freedom center made these realities true realities for me! I think there’s always been a bit of a disconnect with the fact that the most gruesome parts of our history actually happened, so although it was hard to come to terms with, I think this experience was important for me, eye opening, and forced me to really take a look at what our country (and other country’s) history looks like.
