Slavery, Segregation, and the Myth of New Hampshire and The North
Shadows Fall North focuses on the efforts of two dedicated historic preservationists and activists, Valerie Cunningham (co-author of Black Portsmouth: Three Centuries of African American Heritage) of Portsmouth and JerriAnne Boggis of Milford, to recover the stories of people who have been rendered nearly invisible in the historical record, from individuals laid to rest at the African Burying Ground in Portsmouth to the novelist Harriet Wilson of Milford to the twenty slaves who petitioned the state legislature for their freedom in 1779... and many more.
All are welcome to this community screening presented by the Marlin Fitzwater Center for Communication and the First Congregational Church and Society of Rindge.
This event will be located in Spagnuolo Hall of the Campus Center.
