Shirley Recital Hall, Elberson Fine Arts Center

An estimated 100,000 enslaved Americans traversed the Underground Railroad to find freedom in free states and Canada. Adrienne Barnette, licensed professional counselor, and Claire Huller, K-12 intervention specialist, will recount their own 800-mile journey by bike along the Underground Railroad, a mission for character education, historical investigation, scientific exploration and humanitarian engagement. Hear this duo share their experiences through video, pictures and song and learn about the North Carolina “The Pedal for Peace” project that encourages students to seek out history, study character within individuals, and reflect upon their own character in order to develop a strong responsibility to implement positive social interaction throughout and within their global community. Free event. This event is offered as part of the iLEAD Ethics in Leadership programming.
