On Monday, February 27, 2023, students from Dr. Secil Ertorer’s SOC 341 Race and Ethnicity class visited the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center. Participants were given a tour and were told authentic stories of Underground Railroad freedom seekers and abolitionists in Niagara Falls that inspire visitors to recognize modern injustices that stem from slavery and take action toward an equitable society. The class was joined by Bennie D. Williams, assistant dean of students.
