‘Whispers of Angels’ in Black History Month spotlight

REHOBOTH – In recognition of Black History Month, “Whispers of Angels,” an award-winning documentary about the Underground Railroad, will be presented on Tuesday, Feb 9, at the Beebe Medical Arts Building, McCurry Conference Room on Del. 24.

The forum will begin at p.m. It is co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters Sussex County and the Southern Delaware Alliance for Racial Justice.

This film, produced by the Delaware-based production company Teleduction, Inc, tells the story about the legendary figures of the Underground Railroad – Harriet Tubman, Thomas Garrett and William Still – and their activities in Maryland, Delaware and Philadelphia.

The film will be followed by a discussion, led by Stell Parker Selby and Jo Klinge, linking the past with the present.
