A Liberal And A Conservative Are Biking The Path Of The Underground Railroad Together

"Black and white, liberals and conservatives can work together today to achieve common goals."

Jonathan Williams and Andre Block are on two different sides of the political spectrum, but they've set aside their differences to fight for unity. The two embarked on a 2,700 mile journey along the path of the Underground Railroad to spark change and spread love. 

Per The Knox News Sentinel, Williams is a conservative and Block is a liberal. In 2015, the duo met at a New Year's Eve party and instantly formed a friendship. 

"Yes, we are two guys that see things two different ways, but we can work hard and accomplish things together, watch us do it, and maybe others can find a way to do it," Block told the publication. 

The Unity Ride started in New Orleans and will make its way to Canada.

"We chose to use (the Underground Railroad) as a backdrop for today," Williams told the Sentinel.  "Black and white, liberals and conservatives can work together today to achieve common goals. The Underground Railroad goal was freedom. Today it's a lot of different things, but we just need to work  together. I believe that at the end of the day we all have the goal to make the world a better place."

Along the journey, they plan on stopping at different historical places. They are stopping at nearly two-dozen Underground Railroad sites to speak with locals and share their stories.
