Black History Film Series: Just A Ferry Ride to Freedom - RESCHEDULED

This film showcases stories about the Texas-Mexico border and its connection to the Underground Railroad.

Rooted in pre-Civil War Texas along the Rio Grande between the emerging cities of Laredo and Brownsville, this film highlights mixed-race ranches in Hidalgo County and illustrates how culturally diverse the Rio Grande Valley really is.

Lifeways developed during that time still influence life along the border and across the US today.

Featured in the film are community leaders, ranchers, and historians who find out how just a ferry ride across the border to freedom altered the course of U.S.
