Underground Railroad

The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is launching the "Digital Backpack," which will allow visitors at the Freedom Center to utilize social networking technology, digital media production, and wireless computing in ways that empower them to create, "distribute and access a shared vision for freedom." The company has chosen Apple products to power the project: each pack contains an Apple MacBook Pro notebook computer, iPod classic with voice recorder, digital camera, HD digital camcorder and tripod. These perspectives are then captured as a digital movie, archived at the Freedom Center, and published to an iTunes channel that the Center is launching in May.

"Through this project, we will advance two of our greatest priorities: enhancing the unique Freedom Center guest experience, and extending this experience beyond the walls of the Freedom Center to millions across the globe," said Donald W. Murphy, Chief Executive Officer of the Freedom Center.
