By Steve Bell

Clinton Lake, Kansas – The restoration of Quindaro Kansas ruins Juneteenth celebrations in Kansas City, Lawrence and Topeka, a Chautauqua with interpreters who portray Frederick Douglas and John Brown a tour of Underground Railroad sites in Douglas county: these upcoming events recall bleeding Kansas, abolitionists and fugitive slaves. KCUR's Steve Bell went digging for a glimpse of the underground railroad and filed this report.
