I’m a descendant of the Underground Railroad. A little more than a year ago, I was interviewed by my cousin regarding our ancestor Anthony Binga Sr.; who escaped slavery with my cousin’s 3rd great grandfather Daniel Binga Sr. and his immediate family, my 3rd great grandfather William W. Binga, other Binga family members and friends.
My interview is included with a body of other UGRR information on the new website, “The Struggle Against Slavery”. I’m very excited to attend this upcoming event and to see the premier of the new website at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.
NOTE: The above photo on the left is of the Gen. James Taylor plantation/house where Anthony Binga’s immediate family was enslaved and very near there where the group embarked upon a 6 day journey to Canada and freedom. The photo on the right is of Anthony Binga Sr. as a very old man.
