EXPLORE THE 19TH CENTURY   FREE BLACK COMMUNITY OF BOSTON

WALK 'N TALK ON BEACON HILL

With HORACE SELDON

On Boston’s north slope, in the 19th century, black and white men and  
women claimed the larger promise of the Abolition Movement. No other  
area of the nation equaled its contribution to that Abolition  
Movement. Within those combined struggles, women asserted leadership  
roles previously unexpected, often rejected, and at public risk.

  							This remarkable community inspires and challenges us to stand
now,  in, and sometimes against, our day.
