A Quest to Thrive: Economics of Slavery & Portsmouth’s Early Black Community
Saturday, September 8, 2018 at 2 p.m.
$20 per person
Institutionalized slavery in Colonial America provided immense wealth and material culture to many European immigrants and their descendants in the Americas, as Portsmouth’s house museums bear witness. This tour brings into focus an economic system dependent upon the international slave trade with its constant supply of kidnapped unpaid African workers and their descendants, who, against the odds, created one of this country’s oldest Black communities. Tour begins at BHTNH office – 280 Marcy Street, Portsmouth.
Sunday, September 9th, 10 A.M
