New England is proud of its legacy as the birthplace of liberty in North America, which is reflected in New Hampshire’s state motto “Live Free or Die.” However, many New Englanders may be surprised to learn about the oft-forgotten history of slavery and segregation in this area. During the next installment of our discussion series to uncover Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation work in our region, New England Blacks in Philanthropy (NEBiP) and the Kellogg Foundation are pleased to present a preview of the documentary Shadows Fall North.
This documentary explores the untold history of early Black Americans in our region. To complement the film, we have assembled a panel of leaders from local Black Heritage trails – director for the Portsmouth Black Heritage Trail JerriAnne Boggis; consultant and historic preservationist Valerie Cunningham from New Hampshire and L’Merche Frazier, Director of Education and Interpretation from Boston’s Museum of African American History. At the center of our discussion will be a look at how our Heritage trails can be pathways to racial healing as we uncover the truth of our hidden past. Lisa Simmons, of The Color of Film Collaborative, Inc., will moderate the evening.
