Thatcher – Eastern Arizona College’s ongoing Discovery Park lecture series will continue this week with a presentation by Denise Crockett entitled “A Closer Look at the Underground Railroad”.
Scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 11, at 6 p.m., the lecture will be held in the Jupiter Room of the main Discovery Park building at 1651 W. Discovery Park Blvd., in Safford. Admission to the event is free and the presentation is suitable for all ages.
All are invited to enjoy this Black History Month presentation on the Underground Railroad and the role that handmade, coded quilts played in helping move 100,000 enslaved people to freedom.
While there, visitors are invited to tour the Graham County Historical Society’s display of historic artifacts, the “History of Astronomy” gallery, and take a ride on the “Polaris” shuttle simulator for a tour of the solar system; all free of charge and just minutes away from home.
