Join us for Speaker Dr. Roseann Bacha-Garza, Program Manager of the CHAPS program at UTRGV. As most pathways of the Underground Railroad lead north into Canada, there was also a movement through south Texas and into Mexico. Lured by the fact that slavery was abolished in Mexico in 1829, slaves were able to achieve freedom by slipping over the Rio Grande and settling in colonies throughout northern Mexico.
