WHS sophomores tour freedom center

Baily Walker-
     In light of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day,  a group of sophomores from Whiteoak High School went to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center on January 15, as a part of their history and English curriculum. They learned about the history of Cincinnati and its important role in the underground railroad.
   The day started with a tour of the facility; the students watched videos, heard stories, and saw artifacts from the time of slavery. When asked about their favorite part of the day, Ronald Sansone, a sophomore, said, "I liked the actor who did the monologue about being a slave and the video about the chase to the Rankin house."
   The students were well-behaved and got a lot of insight out of the experience.
   We would like to thank the Freedom Center for the tickets.  The lunch and transportation for the trip was funded by the Learn and Serve Ohio Grant.
