14th block - Trip Around the World

from Barbara Brackman's Underground Railroad quilt

"One step in the process toward emancipation was a national movement called Colonization, which developed early in the nineteenth century. Many people believed freed and escaped slaves should move to Canada, which had eliminated slavery with a program of gradual emancipation. Another idea, popular for a while, was a back to Africa movement."
