This tour explores the social and political history of African Americans in Boston
This tour focuses on the history of the African Americans in Boston. From the Revolutionary to Civil War, Boston was the abolitionist center of the fractured nation. Stops include Boston Common, Beacon Hill, the site of the Boston Massacre, and the African American Meeting House. In Hyde Park, we visit a monument dedicated to the first African American regiment to fight for the Union army in the Civil War.
My narration will of course also include the mention of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. , who also had ties to Boston as an alumnus of Boston University. Also of note is how archaeologists to began digging at the Roxbury home of Malcolm X. Furthermore, when passing by the Boston Garden and Fenway Park, I discuss the pantheon of great African American athletes that played in the City of Champions.
