Posts Tagged ‘Boston’

I thought I’d post pictures from a wonderful black history tour I took in Boston a few years ago–if you’re there, check it out. I had no idea of the depth of black history that is in Boston–lots of famed black abolitionists and stops on the Underground Railroad, especially up on Beacon Hill. We toured the Granary Burial Ground, one of the oldest in the nation. The remains of the victims of the Boston massacre are there, including the black (and possibly native american) man, Crispus Attucks. Paul Revere is here, along with 3 signers of the Declaration and a huge mountain of a tombstone for Benjamin Franklin’s parents. Before this tour, I’d never seen headstones from the 1600/1700s before.
