Atlantic Black Box is a public history project that empowers communities throughout New England to take up the critical work of researching and reckoning with our region’s complicity in the global economy of enslavement. This grassroots historical recovery movement is powered by citizen historians and guided by a broad coalition of scholars, community leaders, educators, archivists, museum professionals, antiracism activists, and artists.
On February 25, 2021 at 7:00 p.m., to close out the McGillicuddy Humanities Center’s programming for Black History Month, the project’s creators will discuss the origins of the project, finding collaborators, and why this important work is as necessary now as ever.
Dr. Meadow Dibble is a Visiting Scholar at Brown University’s Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice.
Dr. Kate McMahon works for the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Center for the Study of Global Slavery.
