“7 Steps to Freedom” is an Underground Railroad cell phone tour and website featuring stories related to the struggle for freedom in Salem County, New Jersey. Photographer Wendel White was commissioned to create images evocative of the seven featured stories. State of the Arts goes on location with White as he photographs a famous 19th century anti-slavery book and a site on the Delaware River where the young Hetty Saunders may have crossed in her escape from slavery. Saunders went on to spend her life with a Quaker family and to become a poet. Also interviewed for the story is historian and project creator, James Turk.
