Tuesday is the start of Black History Month. Onondaga County has ties to the Underground Railroad.

You can learn about how Central New York contributed to the abolitionist movement; there's a permanent exhibit displaying artifacts and stories at the Onondaga Historical Association.

"Something that's here all the time, it's permanent. One of the things we're trying to do, too, is the idea that Black History is American History. So it's not just one month, you try to incorporate and integrate those histories into the tapestry that is American History," said Bob Searing, curator of history for the Onondaga Historical Association.

You can visit for yourself Wednesday's through Sunday's.
