What a wonderful project! Oak Park artist and dancer Vickie Casanova taught Ms. Schweigert’s Beye 2nd graders about the Underground Railroad. Together they read the award-winning children’s book, “Show Way,” by Jacqueline Woodson. They created their own art book, learned how to make quilts with secret meanings that are maps to freedom, and presented them to parents and friends.

Check out our slideshow of photos by Vickie Casanova and Amber Schweigert.
