Underground Railroad Audio Recordings

Identifier: Series 18

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of original cassette and DAT interview recordings relating to the Klines' work documenting Underground Railroad activity in the upper Ohio River Valley. They collaborated with the Undergraound Railroae Museum in Flushing, Ohio and students at Olney Friends School in Barnesville, Ohio to collect stories and music that were drawn upon to produce the CDs "Riding Freedom's Train" and "I Believe in Angels Singing." Partial support for field recording came from the Ohio River Border Initiative, a joint project of the Ohio Arts Council, the West Virginia Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
