Join us for "Connections and Conversations: Harriet Tubman and Black Women’s Activism."
Harriet Tubman may be the most well-known African American woman who agitated for freedom and equality in the 19th century, but she was not alone. Discover how Tubman and black women in Boston became leaders in their communities. They lifted their voices, busied their hands, and inspired others to organize against slavery, Jim Crow laws, and racism. They built community through, business, networks, clubs, and church. Come learn a few stories you may not know.
Presenters: Kim Szewczyk, Harriet Tubman National Historical Park and L’Merchie Frasier, the Museum of African American History
Twice per month the National Parks of Boston will host "Connections and Conversations." It’s an opportunity to explore local history from home and away. Compare stories across time, distance and perspective. Exchange ideas and ask questions of park rangers and public historians.
Each program will include two presentations, followed by ample time for questions and answers with both presenters. Connections and Conversations will take place the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM (Eastern Time) live via WebEx. Free.
Coming soon … "Connections and Conversations: The Guns of Fort Ticonderoga" on March 24, 2021.
