Join us as we explore the role of African Americans in Massachusetts in the era of the Civil War!
Day one (April 22) will take place at the Massachusetts Historical Society, where participants can view original documents and artifacts that shed light on the antislavery movement, the work of the 54th Regiment and its supporters, and the creation of Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ memorial on Beacon Street.
Day two (April 23) will take place on Beacon Hill. In the morning, we will take a walking tour through the neighborhood with a ranger from Boston African American National Historic Site. After a lunch on your own at Faneuil Hall, we will regroup for a program at the Museum of African American History, which includes a tour of the recently restored African Meeting House.
This workshop is open to all K-12 teachers and library media specialists. The $55 registration fee covers lunch on April 22, materials, and admission to the Museum of African American History. Teachers can earn 10 Professional Development Points for their participation.
