The Atlantic Black Box Project 

Researching and Reckoning with New England’s Past

March 18, 2021 and 

March 24, 2021

5:30-7:00 pm
Recordings and resources included below!

Join members of the Atlantic Black Box Project for a two-part exploration of slavery in the North and New England’s complicity in the global economy of enslavement. Why have our history books and regional narratives left out this critical aspect of our past, along with the stories of local Black and Indigenous populations? What is the impact of these omissions on our students? Participate in this timely discussion about how unearthing local and regional history can help us to better navigate our present and our future as a community.
