Tonight’s the night. The anticipated series Underground premieres tonight. The series about the Underground Railroad stars a talented cast. It was also co-created by a Black woman and produced by John Legend.
Underground centers on a group of slaves planning a daring 600-mile escape from a Georgia plantation. Along the way, they are aided by a secret abolitionist couple running a station on the Underground Railroad as they attempt to evade the people charged with bringing them back, dead or alive.
