Book Club: The Underground Railroad

This 2017 Pulitzer Prize winning book centers on Cora, an enslaved woman who is an outcast from the enslaved community on a Georgia plantation. When Caesar, a slave recently arrived from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they take the perilous decision to escape to the North.  At each stop on her journey, Cora encounters a different world. As Whitehead brilliantly recreates the unique terrors for black people in the pre-Civil War era, his narrative seamlessly weaves the saga of America, from the brutal importation of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of the present day. Join the Marblehead Museum to discuss this book on Tuesday, August 18th at 7pm.
