Local's Underground Railroad Presentation A Success
Mitchell's presentation, which was reported in the February 9, 2007 edition of The Wave, was a big success.
"My workshop was a great hit," said Mitchell. "I had 26 people in attendance. There was eight children and 18 adults. I had great feedback from the entire audience." Mitchell based her discussion, "The Underground Railroad: Through A Slave Girl's Eyes," on the American Girl Company's Addy book series, which chronicles the story of an African- American girl who escapes slavery. Mitchell brought her Addy doll and several book selections to the February conference. Mitchell is excited for next year's conference. "The conference this year was amazing as always and I can't wait for it to come around again," she said.
