A Collaboration between David Gonzalez and Daniel Carlton
Finding North brings to life the powerful stories of the strivings, sacrifices, and dreams of John P. Parker, a formerly enslaved man who dedicated his life to helping enslaved people escape through the Underground Railroad in southern Ohio. Drawn from historical research, Parker’s tale is woven together with verbatim interview material and oral histories from contemporary community members who tell their stories of searching for haven.
Most suitable for grades 6th and up and any adult who wants to gain insight into the national conversation about prejudice, privilege, and human rights.
