Historic Newton presents Black Newton: Building a Community

July 16, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

$5 – $10

Black history has always been an integral part of Newton history. We examine the important place of Black Newtonians in our city, from Newton’s earliest days through the 21st century. Learn about Black Newtonians’ experiences in slavery and freedom, the development of a historic Black community in the 19th century, the impact of redlining and the construction of the MassPike in the 20th century, and the people whose efforts today keep Newton’s Black community and history a vital and thriving part of who we are.

This Historic Newton program takes place on Zoom on Thursday, July 16 at 5 p.m. Suggested donation: $5.00 for members, $10.00 for non-members. http://www.newtonma.gov/HNdonate

You will receive the Zoom link after your registration. Register here:
