3:00 PM - Oberlin’s Responses and Reactions to Issues of Race History Walk
History Walk begins in front of The First Church in Oberlin, U.C.C.

This tour highlights historic events that reveal both Oberlin's progress and setbacks in race relations dating from early Oberlin all the way up to the 21st Century. Learn how Oberlin was a leader in abolition, participating heavily in events such as the Oberlin-Wellington Rescue, the Raid on Harper's Ferry, and the American Civil War, but also struggled with its own issues of equality and racism during these early years and later through Reconstruction, Jim Crow, Civil Rights, and today.

Space is limited, reservation required. Register on-line or call 440.774.1700. This history walk will be cancelled if it is raining at start time and registrants may request refunds or transfers.
