Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana will celebrate Black History Month with the presentation “Escape of Caroline,” based on a true story of the Underground Railroad.

Deborah Asante and Bob Sander of Storytelling Arts Indiana will re-enact the escape story of Caroline and her four children as they head north through Indiana, encountering betrayal, sympathy and a second chance.

The event will take place at 2 p.m. Feb. 22 in the William E. Steckler Ceremonial Courtroom, Room 202 of the Birch Bayh Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse, 46 E. Ohio St., Indianapolis. The presentation is free and open to the public, and one hour of CLE credit is pending approval.

The storytellers’ performance will be followed with a presentation by Jeannie Regan-Dinius of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology. She will discuss the legal and historical elements of Caroline’s escape, drawing on her expansive knowledge of the Underground Railroad and its legacy in Indiana.
