I am working a one man show depicting the life of Mr. Still and this video has really helped me understand the struggle and the persistence of the abolitionists during the 18th century. i love reading and studying about our history and wold like to thank the makers of this video for their love of history and the truth.

I have seen many PBS documentaries; however, this is the best PBS documentary that I have ever seen. William Still was a giant of a man. An excellent documentary for a man who loved his people greatly.

The story of William Still who was prominent conductor on Underground Railroad is heartwarming. After purchasing the book on tape. I have viewed it several times. The absolute courage shown by Mr. Still is awesome, a free black man during slavery, working to offer freedom to runaway slaves could have ended his life and plugged him into slavery.Knowing that fact he continued being a conductor on Underground Railroad. I was overjoyed to discover Mr. Still and Sister Harriet Tubman worked together to free runaway slaves. She at times brought runaway slaves to Mr. Still's location for food, shelter and rest. In reading about both heroes and discovering different methods adapted to relay messages that escape to freedom was approaching as well as signals and tactics used in Philadelphia to inform members of Underground Railroad were simplistic yet effective.

This was a spectacular book! William Still is considered a Top Authority on the Underground Railroad. There is also a pbs.org DVD available. My community college students borrowed the book to help them write their research project. There are tons of pithy
(short, deep, anecdotes) that are so meaningful. Other books quote Wm. Still often. If there's only one book you want, make it this one! Prof. Merry B.
