Discover the hidden history of slavery & freedom in Brookline
Saturday, Aug 19th 1:00-2:30
This lively 90-minute tour visits three sites telling the history and stories of slavery and freedom. Beginning at Town Hall, participants look for evidence of slavery hidden in plain sight. The walk continues to an Underground Railroad house to hear the story of a person sheltered here after a daring escape to freedom. Justice seekers, Black & white, then & now, are highlighted. While the walk isn’t strenuous, participants can easily drive the distances from Town Hall to the 2 sites on Walnut Street, where parking is usually easily found on site or across the street.
