SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

An emotional re-enactment of the nation's slave trade and the Underground Railroad it spawned.

It took place at the First Ward Community Center in Saginaw.

It included an auction and a guided escape through a maze.

"We have to teach our children the history that we've actually come through," said Michelle McGregor, First Ward Community Center. "About how we arrived to where we are today."

Money raised goes toward the center's youth programs.
