Local Author Visits Our 3rd Graders

On February 16, our 3rd graders had a visit from local author and history instructor Steve Miller. Mr. Miller, an adjunct history instructor at our Forsyth Technical Community College, has recently published a book in partnership with professor J. Timothy Allen. Their book explores the question, “what was the Underground Railroad in North Carolina?” For his visit, Mr. Miller explained what the Underground Railroad was and told students a little bit about three of important people in the history of the Underground Railroad in North Carolina. Students had many questions for Mr. Miller and continued their learning after the visit with an activity with their teachers. Mr. Miller’s book is located in the Professional materials in the Kimmel Farm Media Center.
