Hi Friends! Unfortunately, today’s tour at the Frick Environmental Center is cancelled out of an abundance of caution due to the incoming storms. The safety of the attendees and our staff is of the utmost importance.

Coming from Africa to the United States, the enslaved were unfamiliar with their new environment, yet found resources and amassed knowledge of the new land. This proved essential for survival and was a key element of the journey from slavery to freedom. Take a tour of the From Slavery To Freedom Garden – an outdoor extension of the Heinz History Center’s From Slavery to Freedom exhibit and a space to explore the connection between freedom seekers and the land.
