As we shift our focus toward Black History Month, what do you know about slave gravestones in your town? Where slaves buried in that old cemetery down the street? What do the epitaphs say? The more pictures and info we can gather this month, the more impressive our collection will be. As with all of our projects, we exist to expand and support the efforts of scholars and students of history everywhere. Send us your photos and/or info!
Also, in honor of Black History Month, check out our online exhibit on African-Americans in Antebellum Boston.
