Tim Reid and Glynn Turman star as two of a group of four black slaves who decide to escape the plantation where they work and start out on a dangerous journey for Canada. Fortunately, the four discover the "Underground Railroad," the famous network of whites and free blacks who shelter, feed, and help fleeing slaves evade authority. Set just before the Civil War, RACE TO FREEDOM is a thoughtful and moving family drama that offers a compelling picture of what an earlier, divided America was like and what many had to do to survive.
