The Black Experience--Middlesex County from the 1640s to the 1870s
The Black Experience in Middlesex County from the 1640s to the 1870s. This event is taking place at the Woburn Memorial High School Auditorium on Thursday, September 27 starting at 7 p.m. The guest speakers will each briefly present on their research into the lives of both free and enslaved Black people, which will then provide the context for the evening's panel discussion. We'll be joined by Maria Madison from the Robbins House in Concord (Maria is also the Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis), Amy Peters Clark from the Royall House & Slave Quarters in Medford, and John Hannigan from the Massachusetts State Archives.
