The African American Freedom Trail Symposium: The Past, Present, and Future of Black Boston

The African American Freedom Trail Symposium marks the launch of a city-wide network and community-based archive, housed at Tufts University. Inspired by the scholarship of the late Tufts Professor Gerald R. Gill (1948-2007) on civil rights and the history of Black Boston, and driven by faculty and student research, the project maps African American public history sites, while developing collaborative, community-based public history projects across greater Boston.

This event is sponsored by Tufts Center for the Study of Race and Democracy, the Africana Center, Africana Studies, the Department of History, the Office of the Provost, and the Office of the Dean of Arts and Sciences.
