They came as enslaved people and reshaped America. Blacks were first enslaved in Massachusetts in Salem in 1638, four years after Gov. John Winthrop wrote our first slavery law in 1634. After gaining freedom shorty after the writing of the Massachusetts constitution, blacks made great strides in the community and major contributions to Salem and the state by influencing policy, establishing businesses and leading the abolitionist movement.

The event is live but we will show you locations around Salem, Massachusetts via virtual background and screen shares. Tickets are available at the link. Once you purchase, you will receive instructions and information on how to log in the evening of the tour. You only need to purchase one ticket per computer, iPad, phone, TV or other device and several people can watch with you.
