Whispers Of Angels: A Story Of The Underground

Series Website »
WHISPERS OF ANGELS: A STORY OF THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD is a documentary that recounts the story of the critical Eastern Line of The Underground Railroad and its role in the 19th century anti- slavery movement in America. Actors Ed Asner and Blair Underwood portray white Quaker abolitionist Thomas Garret and free, black anti- slavery activist William Still in dramatic re-enactments filmed on location in the historical settings where these freedom fighters undertook their noble and dangerous work. Interviews with a cadre of top scholars explore the themes of courage and racial cooperation in the years leading up to the Civil War.
