Valerie Howes, Freelance Writer

Today's Parent Magazine, WestJet Magazine

Chatham-Kent Tourism and SWOTC hosted Valerie in the fall of 2018 with sole purpose of learning more about the Underground Railroad in Chatham-Kent. Her visit was limited to sites that would be open for regular hours during Black History Month, to share her passion and to encourage others to visit the sites. She took this opportunity to explore, with her daughter, Buxton National Historical Site & Museum along with the Chatham-Kent Black Historical Society and Black Mecca Museum and the BME Freedom Park. She shares with us two unique perspectives. One with her daughter, for Today's Parent Magazine which you can access here, the other for WestJet Magazine which you can access here
