Meet at Joy Street at Smith Court, GPS-6 Joy Street, the Museum of African American History,
On both the north and south sides of Beacon Hill in the 1800s, writers and writing were essential to everyday life. On the South Slope, the life of the wealthy white literati was lively and productive, with wide-ranging subjects that became the basis for a golden age of American literature. On the North Slope, the center of Boston’s free Black community, Black writers, although influenced by their South Slope neighbors, were laser-focused on the great topic of the era, slavery. On this tour we’ll meet some of the Black thinkers and writers who made their mark on literary and political history. They were people of color who – for some part of their lives – called Boston home. Here they worked, fought injustice, raised families, and, lucky for us, wrote their stories. We will share their names and their stories of truth, passion, bravery, and hope.
