"Where the Community Connects"

Virtual Historic Site Visit: Boston African American National Historic Site Presents "Explore The Black Heritage Trail"

Throughout March, you can visit significant historic sites in Massachusetts virtually, courtesy of the Tewksbury Public Library's collaboration with select National Park Service units in Massachusetts.

Enjoy a virtual lunchtime lecture from the Boston African American National Historic Site, entitled "Explore the Black Heritage Trail." The Black Heritage Trail showcases residences and community buildings associated with a Black community that thrived on, and near, the north slope of Beacon Hill before, during, and after the American Civil War. Throughout that time, this community struggled and organized for equal rights and access to equal education. Community members championed the movement to abolish slavery and even housed freedom seekers on their journey along the Underground Railroad. Led by National Park Ranger Shawn Quigley.
