Under the Quilt of Night



You are a journalist of a big time newspaper in your town.  After reading "Under the Quilt of Night" by Deborah Hopkins, you have decided that people need to know more about it.  Your task is to research slavery and the underground railroad.  You will write a five paragraph essay describing slavery and the underground railroad.  You must include a visual showing the rout of at least one path people used to escape slavery.  Some other things you may want to mention in your paper include the jobs slaves had, how they were treated, and how they excaped and went to freedom.  Remember you are the journalist, it is your job to inform the community of what happened back then.  In the end, everyone will present their findings and we will decide on the top 3 we will send to the actual paper to be published!  Work hard and have fun!
