ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the 19th century, Boston’s free African American community led the nation in the movement to end slavery and to achieve equal rights. These remarkable patriots established businesses, founded organizations and created schools. Their houses of worship, homes, schools, and Underground Railroad sites make up Boston’s Black Heritage Trail®. Enjoy this audio tour developed by high school students for families and children.

Discover the stories of a powerful black community that built historic places that stand today on Beacon Hill in Boston. Come to see historic sites that once served as churches, schools and gathering places for political activism and cultural life and hosted giants in the antislavery movement including Frederick Douglass, Maria Stewart and William Lloyd Garrison.

Visit the Museum of African American History at 46 Joy Street, Site No. 13 on the Black Heritage Trail®. Enjoy our exhibits and a wide variety of adult and youth education and public programs. For more information go to www.maah.org.

The Black Heritage Trail® is a walking experience that highlights 14 sites on Beacon Hill. Two sites are open to the public, the Museum of African American History’s Abiel Smith School and African Meeting House. Other sites along the Trail are privately owned and are not open to the public. The Black Heritage Trail® extends from the Robert Gould Shaw and Massachusetts 54th Regiment Memorial on the Boston Common to the Museum at 46 Joy Street. Guided walking tours are offered by the National Park Service. Contact Boston African American National Historic Site at (617) 742-5415 or www.nps.gov/boaf.

The Museum of African American History is New England’s largest black history museum with four national historic sites dating back to the 1770’s: Boston, African Meeting House (1806) and Abiel Smith School (1835); Nantucket, African Meeting House (c. 1820) and Seneca Boston-Florence Higginbotham House (c. 1774).
