Lecture 8, Activists in the Midwest, discusses those Underground Railroad activists who worked north of the Ohio River in the Midwest and their systematic efforts to aid freedom seekers.

Those discussed range from the anonymous inhabitants of obscure African American settlements along the river to famous activists, such as Levi Coffin, John Rankin, and John P. Parker in Ripley, Ohio, to several significant Detroit activists.
