This mural is dedicated to the struggle of enslaved African Americans and the role Cleveland-area abolitionists played in the Underground Railroad. Cleveland, Ohio, "Hope," was the final destination fugitive slaves hoped to reach before making the trip to freedom at St. Catharines, Canada, "Glory." The boy on the front of the train has arrived at a new beginning and aspires to find his higher purpose. The geese symbolize direction and spiritual freedom.
