The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad is taking people on a trip through history.

Saturday night people got to learn about the Underground Railroad from the perspective of a runaway slave.

They got a taste of what it was like to travel along a part of the underground railroad, that went through Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

More than 50 actors dressed in period costumes played the roles of people from that time in U-S history.

Participants say the event provokes much-needed dialogue.
