Join the D&L and the Easton Chapter of the NAACP aboard the Josiah White II for an exploration of the experiences of African Americans on our region’s canals – as laborers, fleeing slavery on the Underground Railroad, to the story of Captain Jimmy Brown, one of the last of the canal boatmen.  Our soul food-inspired menu from Culinary Experts will be accompanied by the smooth sound of jazz duo Patrick & Carol Poladian.  10% of the evening’s proceeds will benefit the Easton Chapter.

This will be a 2 1/2 hour cruise with a lift-lock experience.  BYOB wine and beer.
