Genesee Student Project

After learning about one of Harriet's peers, Morgan "Luke" Freeman, Genesee students wrote a letter to First Niagara Bank asking the bank to put a plaque on it's wall, recognizing the site as Freeman's Barbershop, an underground railroad stop. This video was made at the plaque dedication.
