The Hudson Library & Historical Society will host a live virtual streaming event with New York Times bestselling author Mika Brzezinski. Perhaps best known as co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Brzezinski is also the author of multiple books about empowering women in their personal and professional lives. Comeback Careers: Rethink, Refresh, Reinvent Your Success--At 40, 50, And Beyond is her most recent book, co-written with Ginny Brzezinski. This is a one-time only exclusive event and will not be recorded.
When the pioneers came out to Hudson from New England, they brought a hatred of slavery with them. As Congregationalists, they abhorred the concept of owning another human being. Fugitive slaves found a safe if temporary haven in the town David Hudson founded in Ohio’s Western Reserve. The highly illegal activity that we call the Underground Railroad had to be conducted with absolute secrecy: thus we may never know the full extent of the town’s involvement. Hudson is fortunate to have many buildings still standing that have ties to the anti-slavery movement and in particular to the Underground Railroad.
